This aqua patent medicine bottle was recovered during excavations at historic Fort Hays by Kansas Historical Society archeologists. The advertising on the bottle states that it contained "SCALP FOOD CRANITONIC HAIR FOOD" made by the "CRANITONIC HAIR FOOD CO." of "PARIS LONDON NEW YORK." As the bottle dates to a later time than the fort's occupation it may have been part of a dumping episode.

Date: 1897-1921
