Flea Market Find

Apothecaries Hall Co., Oil Citronella. Five bucks at the flea market. The cork is saturated with citronella, so I can tell it's still good!

The label has the name of Clark H. W. Newton as the manager, which means it dates from no earlier than July 1903, when Newton became the manager of Apothecaries Hall.

The company name changed to The Hubbard-Hall Chemical Co. in 1959 and Hubbard-Hall Inc. in 1986. The Hubbard-Hall headquarters is located on South Leonard Street in Waterbury. Their former downtown building, constructed in 1894 and bearing the name Apothecaries Hall, is currently being renovated for market-rate apartments.
