About this work


Display card from the early 1900s printed in yellow, orange and black on white card with a border suggesting old parchment. An attractive, smiling, young edwardian woman with dark hair holds a bottle of the tonic and a spoon in the bottom, right corner. No manufacturer or location is mentioned other than "M.P.S. series" which indicates that the product may have been a generic one sold on a cooperative basis through independent pharmacy shops. 'M.P.S.' can mean: Member of the Pharmaceutical Society, who may well have been responsible for coordinating the manufacture and distribution of the medicine.


[London?] : [Pharmaceutical Society of Great Britain?], [between 1900 and 1909?]
