The Womans Tonic. Dr. Pierce’s Favorite Prescription.

Off the highway in College Ward when you’re leaving Logan and heading toward the canyon to go up and over the pass to Brigham City you can see off to the right an add for “The Womans Tonic. Dr. Pierce’s Favorite Prescription.” on the side of a barn.

I’ve always loved the old look of it, I wondered if it was real for many years but after looking into it I found it it was a very popular product that sold millions of bottles through the mail and claimed to instantly cure any problem a women had.

Over 100 years ago the add was painted on the barn and $10 a year was paid for some time.   The company went out of business in the 1940s but the add still stands.
