LabelTwo of Dr. McMunn's products are prominently displayed near the bedside of a sick woman. Outside, men are harvesting the cinchona bark from which its major alkaloids, quinine and cinchonine, will be made. Despite the North American setting depicted, these natural ingredients were imported from Peru, where the cinchona tree grew.
