Old-School “Medicine” Advertising

We’re using the term “medicine” loosely here, since the products featured in these vintage ads are hardly what someone would consider acceptable treatment today.

Check out these vintage pharmaceutical ads for such miracle cures as Cocaine Toothache Drops, Asthma Cigarettes (not for children under 6), and Bayer Heroin: “The Sedative for Cough.”
