Description

The trade card features a wolf making off with a pig. Another pig looks out from a pigsty at the scene. It seems to be a rendition of the Three Little Pigs story. "Burdock Blood Bitters" was a tonic made from burdock root and claimed to purify the blood and cure many other ailments (digestive, etc.).
