"Upper Canada Village" by John de Visser
Research Facts
See also 996.001.478; Upper Canada Village is near Morrisburg, Ont.; began because a huge hydro dam at Cornwall created a deep reservoir (Lake St. Lawrence), a 35-mile stretch of the river providing access to the Great Lakes; but 7 villages and 1/3 of Morrisburg had to be inundated, and 6,500 people and 500 houses had to be relocated; contained Crysler's farm (Nov. 11, 1813, War of 1812); between 1955-1958 collected houses and smaller artifacts; actual work began in 1956, and mostly completed in 1961; period before 1867 displayed

Veterinarian Dr. George W. Bell (1858-1927), graduated from the Ontario Veterinary College 1880; practised veterinary medicine in the U.S. for 13 years. Returning to Kingston he established a veterinarian clinic on Brock Street, and continued to produce his patent medicines for use in farm livestock and pet animals under the business name of ‘Dr. Bell’s Wonder Medicine Company’. Dr. Bell made both veterinary and human remedies.
Dr. Bell’s Wonder Medicine was used as a sort of "cure all" but especially in the treatment of colic and inflammation and for cough and chills. The ingredients were aconite, belladonna, digitalis and nux vomica (strychnine).
He was principal (1895-1897) for the new Kingston Veterinary College at Queen’s University. By 1919 he was the milk inspector.
The operation of Dr. Bell’s Wonder Medicine Company was headed by his son. In 1936 when the United States Food and Drug Administration accused Dr. Bell’s Wonder Medicine Company of “misbranding.” Bottles were seized and analyzed under the Food and Drug Act. Labelled at 40 per cent alcohol, the tests concluded the mixture contained between 63 per cent and 65 per cent per bottle. Legal action ensued. In later years, the once-respected and prosperous company was labelled as quackery.

Research Facts
Pinkham Co. consigned its records to accessible archives, unlike other such companies (after its demise); trademark face and "Yours for Health" Archives given to Arthur and Elizabeth Schlesinger Library on the History of Women in America, at Radcliffe College; vegetable compound first marketed in 1875, challenging "heroic" medicine (bleeding, etc.) with botanical blends; contained true and false unicorn root, pleurisy root, life-root, black cohosh, fenugreek seed and 19% alcohol; probably came from one of the major botanical therapy digests ("American Dispensatory" by John King).
The Panic of 1873 ruined her husband, who had never been secure, so at age 56 she went into business; appealed a great deal to women, and they used this (she and her sons); Lydia was born in 1819 and died in 1883, but for 20 years after, women were still receiving answers to their letters, signed by Lydia (uncovered by a photographer who showed her tombstone in "Ladies' Home Journal" in 1904; song ("American Health Quackery", p. 62); she was a folk heroine; advertising power of children so great, Lydia's granddaughters began appearing.
Over the years, every ingredient changed ... except the alcohol; after many public attacks on the alcohol content they changed the composition and never regained its popularity (in 1904 had 20.6% alcohol); sold because of boldly feminist approach; claims varied - increased fertility ("A baby in every bottle") - relief from cramps and PMS - ; all sorts of "family" advice given; "Write to Mrs. Pinkham" - actually the widow of Lydia Pinkham's son (not quite false, just misleading); still around in 1957; mid-1920's, 15% alcohol; 1938 contained gentian, black cohosh, true and false unicorn, life-root, pleurisy root, dendelion, chamomile, a little vitamin B1, and 15% alcohol; in 1957, also contained licorice, Jamaica Dogwood and only 13.5% alcohol (pills had Jamaica Dogwood, pleurisy rot, licorice and iron); had 3 sons, named Dan, Will and Charles,and a daughter named Aroline, who married William H. Gove.
Husband Isaac died in 1889; by 1881 grossing $30,000 /
month; Pinkham's "Guide for Women" a great success; initially four pages, by 1901 ran to 62 pages in five languages; compound sold in many foreign countries by the 1900's; "There was a bad moment in China when it was discovered that only married women were buying the compound. Investigation showed that the trouble lay in the Chinese name for Vegetable Compound which had been most ineptly translated as 'Smooth Sea's Pregnancy Womb Birth - Giving Magical 100 Per Cent Effective Water'." (Holbrook).
Family-run until 1968 when sold to a pharmaceutical firm; 1972 operations moved to Puerto Rico; 1980's still being made; Lydia was very independent woman who definitely supported the women's liberation movement, although it was not labeled as such back then; often printers only had Lydia Pinkham's likeness, and so when Queen Victoria died, it was actually Lydia's picture they used, as they did when several famous women died.
