    “Take care of your health by doing a well water drinking cure at home, with the long-famous medically recommended Lauchstädter Brunnen from the historic spa in Lauchstädt, discovered in 1703.”

    Historic precursor of Dr. Bronner’s label design? The text mentions “more than 200 years” of history, so this is from sometime after 1903. The typeface family in use, Offenbacher Schwabacher, was designed in 1898–1900.
