Three boxed bandages two of which appear to be slings. Top and bottom left were made by the Mine Safety Appliance Co.; bottom right was made by Davis Emergency Equipment Co and is dated 1924. Wiki tells us regarding MSA that: “With help from Thomas Edison the company was formed in 1914…” These are first-aid supplies but I could not resist the eye-catching graphics on the boxes, all of which retain their unused appliances. The Davis box has a couple of stable tears; the other two are in very good condition.
