I have a similar bottle without the paper logo. it also has a cork rather than screw top cork is still in place. raised lettering on the glass is "Lanes Emulsion" and on either side "Body Builder" and "Lung Healer" any idea of what year this bottle would have been from? or any interest?

thanks
Malcolm
