19th century advertisement for Floreston cologne

This three-inch-wide scrap of paper from the late 19th century features an advertisement for Floreston cologne ("There is nothing like it"), which was a product of Hiscox & Co. of New York.

Based upon the partial image on the other side of this piece of paper, I was able to determine that the uncut, original Victorian trade card touted the benefits of Parker's Tonic. You can see what the image looked like on
