Squibb Army Medical Pannier - The army needed a way to get medical equipment, in a usable order, to the wounded. This compact medical chest, designed by pharmaceutical manufacturer Edward R. Squibb of Brooklyn New York, and sold to the United States at a cost of $100 each. It was made out of wood with an iron frame and had the medicines packed in an orderly fashion. There was a chart glued to the inside lid which showed where each of the numbered medicines was located in the box. This rare original pannier contains its original label.
