Research Facts
Allen & Hanburys were relative latecomers into the feeding bottle market. Their first feeder was an innovative design when introduced in 1895 with features drawn from several sources. The new boat shaped bottle had a wide bent up neck fitted with a pull over teat and a lower opening that protruded the bottle slightly from the body was fitted with a vented rubber plug. The four advantages of the new bottle were listed as: graduations to measure the food; no angular corners to facilitate easier cleaning; no long tube to breed germs and an effective valve to regulate the air flow and prevent colic.
Allen & Hanburys, a UK pharmaceutical company established in 1715, also produced infant foods and feeding equipment between 1879 and 1958.
Information on how to prepare ”Allenbury’s Milk Food, attaching teats to and cleaning the ‘Allenbury’s Feeder’ bottle can be found in 009.021.005 ‘Infant Feeding and Management’ by Allen & Hanburys Ltd. April 1923.

Research Facts
This style of infant feeders is known as the "turtle shaped, bent neck, long tube bottle typified by the Maws Alexandra Co." and was a well established commercial success for about 20 years. The medical profession had grave doubts about the design since high infant mortality rate was linked with its use, due to bacteria trapped in poorly cleaned rubber feeding tubes and teats.

Research Facts
Found in a cabinet in the donors' basement after they bought the house from John Briscoe of Briscoe's pharmacy which was located at 229 Princess Street in Kingston from 1954 to 1966; it is likely that Briscoe acquired the collection during his career as a pharmacist.
John Briscoe took over Bishop's Drugs Ltd in 1954; Bishop owned another store at 528 Princess Street from 1946 to 1954 and it had been a drug store under other ownership from 1923 until 1946; this is a possible origin of some of the collection.
