Seabury and Johnson

In 1874, Robert W. Johnson and George J. Seabury, working in East Orange, developed a medicated adhesive plaster with a rubber base. The business was in Doddtown only 500 feet from Franklin School and was listed as on Glenwood Avenue (although the building with the tower appears to front on Franklin Street), between Glenwood Place and Franklin Street.
