Feelin' croaky? - Try Kilkof from Parkinsons

"Croaky" the frog became something of a mascot for the company.  I'm estimating this advert dates from the 50s or 60s.  (NB ~ this image is not owned by me)
P.S. Any resemblance between this product and one currently being manufactured under the same name is purely coincidental (as they say).

Blood and Stomach Pills!

Yes, I know, it's a bit of a hackneyed cliché these days, but Parkinsons used to manufacture these in their zillions.  Below are some packaging and labels for Blood & Stomach pills.
