About this work


Chromolitho card issued possibly in the 1890s by Dietrich Ferdinand Onnen, pharmacist, for local distribution (there is no mention of the name of the town where his premises are located) advertising his shop and German Fever and Ague Mixture for "all forms of malarial disease", on sale at 50 cents and containing no arsenic or quinine. This may have been sent as a Christmas card (we have two different ones - possibly from different years). The picture shows a snowballing scene with 9 boys playing in the snow, 2 small girls watching from a gap in a wooden fence behind, trees, fields and a church behind them.
