Dummy carton and bottle for 'Tabloid' sulphonamide-P, London, England, 1938
This is a rare example of prototype packing for a type of sulphonamide anti-bacterial drug. A handwritten date on the box and bottle shows that the packaging was created in 1938. Sulphonamide-P was another name for sulphonanilamide. The instructions on the box are in English, French, German, Spanish and Italian, illustrating how Burroughs, Wellcome & Co were aiming for and delivering to a global market. The drugs that would eventually have been placed in this packaging were made in Canada.
