Title Dr. Eisenberg Medical Labels
Description A large roll of medical labels. The paper is slightly green and brown. Printed on the label is Dr. Joseph J. Eisenberg Clinic Division Chemistry Pharmacy Milwaukee, Wisconsin. These labels most likely would have been used to stick on perscription bottles for patients. The back is not tacky with any glue, but an adhesive could have been used to apply it to a bottle.
