The Doerflinger Artificial Limb Co. Ephemera

Just two sheets left on this vintage notepad from The Doerflinger Artificial Limb Co. of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, purveyors of limbs, braces, trusses, belts, crutches, wheel chairs, elastic stockings — and, one presumes, “etc.”.

Since Doerflinger’s sold (and owned patents for) artificial limbs and other medical devices since just after the Civil War — no doubt influenced by young Charles H. Doerflinger‘s wounds in the war.

No date; based on address and phone number, I’d say this ephemera is circa 1940s.
