About this work


Late victorian chromolitho trade card advertising Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound, Lydia E. Pinkham's Liver Pills and Lydia E. Pinkham's Blood Purifier. The card is one of a series. This one shows a young girl with blonde, curly hair in a red headress and indigo top with lace trimmings smiling and looking upwards and to her right against a yellow background. The Compound was supposed to cure ovarian troubles, inflammation, ulceration, falling and displacement of the womb... and is particularly adapted to the change of life... faintness, flatulency, destroys all cravings for stimulants... bloating, headaches, nervous prostration, general debility, depression and indigestion. The liver pills (laxative) cured constipation, biliousness and torpidity of the liver. The Blood purifier was supposed to cure scrofula, rheumatism, cancerous humour, erysipelas, canker, salt rheum and skin diseases, all of which were due to "impurities of the blood".
