Graham, NC, USALive Auction
Description: The "Tabloid" brand first aid kits were made by Burroughs, Wellcome & Co. They were given to explorers and influential individuals of the day in an attempt to promote the product. In 1919, the first aid kit flew on the first transatlantic flight when a British team flew to New York from England and then back in 183 hours. They also went on expeditions to the North and South poles, as well as many other expedition destinations. This kit appears to be complete and in unused condition. All of the original paperwork is intact.
