Williams’ Lozenges (27 April 1859)

1859 Wholesale Chemist Invoice from the Roberts Family Archive

This invoice, dated 27th April 1859, is from Evans, Sons & Co, Wholesale Druggists, and gives their address as 31 Fleet Street in Liverpool, where they had a Mills and Laboratory.

It simply lists the purchase of two sorts of Williams Lozenges at a total cost of £11.00.

Evans continued as a firm into the 20th century and this advertisement for smoker’s pastilles is from July 1917.  The company was eventually subsumed into Glaxo in 1961.

The big hole in the middle is where the document has been put it on a spike after processing.
