Some History: Henry Clay Glover started practicing veterinary medicine sometime prior to 1877. In 1888, his medicines were awarded the medal of superiority by the American Institute of New York. He identified himself as a “Specialist in Canine Diseases". As a personal testimonial, he stated that as of 1897, he had been the Veterinarian to the Westminster Kennel Club for 20 years.

The first known address for Dr. Glover is 1293 Broadway, New York City. Tins with this address state “H. Clay Glover,V.S. Prop", and appear to be the earliest-known. Some time prior to 1914, the company moved to 118 West 31st Street. Glover was still sole proprietor, but by 1917 the company was incorporated, and the tins stated “H. Clay Glover Co” while retaining the West 31st Street address. The company moved to 127-129 West 24th Street in 1923.

Offered is a delightful 1940s era reverse painted pharmacy sign. This wood framed drug store sign measures 22.5 inches long x 14.5 inches wide.

Quite visually appealing, the sign is in very nice condition with minor paint loss with flaking on the left side. There is some lightening on the finish as well but it is not obtrusive. The photos actually enhance this effect which is much less obvious when viewed "in person". This paint issue on the left side is best appreciated in the last photo.

Eli Lilly was a proud manufacturer of proprietary medicines for over a century and often provided signage to drug store owners to both assist in promoting these local pharmacies as well as to advertise their own products.
