ANTIQUE MEDICINES

 

Dr Jayne's Medicines
Philadelphia's Patent Medicine Empire

 

 


One of the earliest and most successful patent medicine makers of the 19th century was David Jayne.
He was born in PA in 1798/99 and later spent the bulk of his career making medicines in Philadelphia.

Much has already been written about the Dr Jayne medicine business and I wont attempt to repeat it here.
Several excellent pages concerning Dr Jayne can be found at the following links ...

The photos are ones found over the years on the internet.

JAYNE'S EARLY YEARS


D. JAYNE SALEM N.J.

Probably one of the earliest Jayne's bottles. After studying medicine at the University of Pennsylvania and achieving his medical degree, Dr. David Jayne started a practice in Cumberland County and then Salem County, New Jersey around 1822/25.

 

Dr Jayne started introducing his famous medicine products around 1831.
He moved to the "big city" Philadelphia to make his fortune around 1836.
His first address was a drug store at #20 South Third Street.
