Richard R. Radway introduced his liniment, titled Radway's Ready Relief (R.R.R.), for treatment of external and internal pain, ca. 1847. The liniment was often packaged in a rectangular aqua glass bottle embossed "R.R.R / Radways & Co., New York / Entd Accord to Act of Congress." Until 1928 the liniment was still being manufactured by Radway and Company in New York City, but soon fell out of popularity (Higby and Stroud 1999:82). #archaeology #medicine
