Wakelee's Camelline


It was in Buffalo, New York, 1822, that Henry Peck Wakelee first established himself as a druggist. Thirty-five years later, he moved his business to San Francisco, California. Within ten years Wakelee was one of the largest wholesale druggists on the West Coast. Wakelee's Camelline claimed to "impart a healthful, natural complexion". This bottle is made from cobalt blue glass and embossed with "WAKELEE'S/CAMELLINE".
