Research Facts
Dressings are used to promote healing of wounds and prevent infection; consists of a sterile padding or compress in direct contact with the wound accompanied by an antiseptic substance, such as petrolatum, a semisolid substance made from petroleum often used as a topical treatment for burns and abrasion. Ingram & Bell’s Burn Dressing was marketed as “Industrial Standard Formula for First Aid Treatment” and contained sodium bicarbonate in a white petrolatum base.
Ingram & Bell Limited was a medical supply company first established in Toronto in 1905; the company became a Canadian leader in the distribution of medical products; their wide selection included equipment, surgical tools, and pharmaceuticals; as the company grew, they established branches in Montreal, Winnipeg, Calgary, and Vancouver; became Ingram & Bell Inc. and 49% owned by MDS in 1986; MDS acquired 100% in 1993; became Source Medical Corporation after merger with Allegiance Healthcare Canada Inc. in 1997; acquired by Cardinal Health Canada Inc. in 2005.
The D in diamond symbol and date codes embossed on the bottom indicates the jar itself was made by Canadian glass manufacturer Dominion Glass Company at the factory in Point St. Charles, Quebec; the progressive line system month code and “6” year code, along with the Ingram & Bell logo, signify it was produced in either 1956 or 1966.

Research Facts
Bunions are a common foot condition that form at the base of big toe; the toe joint extends outward causing redness, discomfort, and pain.
The label on the Cress Bunion Salve jar claims to cure bunions after several months, although the carbolic acid in the formula may have been a source of pain relief in combination with the other directions to position the foot properly.
The D in diamond symbol embossed on the bottom indicates glass jar itself was made by Canadian glass manufacturer Dominion Glass Company; Dominion Glass Company trademarked the D-in-diamond logo in 1928; date marks were first introduced by Dominion in 1940.
