A large and superb vintage old pop or soda label with a gambling / racing theme. Tote - The Sportsmans Tonic would no doubt have gone down well at any race meeting. Lovely scene of a race meeting with horses, jockey ad stand with the winner running into a large horseshoe. Its a testament to the clever marketing and advertising of yesteryear. Take a cheap to produce bottle of soda, flavoured with syrup and rebadge it as a "Sportsman Tonic". Yep, Tote is yet another vanished drink!
Real Bobs Sauce is simply one of the best old sauce labels I have ever owned. Its very early too as it is shellaced ie covered in a thin glaze. Centre stage is Soldier Bob in his tropical fighting gear inc his pith helmet. There is no makers name but label was printed in Adelaide so this is another great Downunder label....unusually it also came with its companion neck label.....
