No Family Should Be Without...

"... a positive cure for all those
painful complaints and weaknesses
so common to our best female population."

That is a quote from the back of an Antique Trading Card circa 1880's. You'll find several examples of these unique Trade Cards in this post. The art alone makes these very desirable to Collectors... however, the backs are impressive as well. I love how they "talked" back then... they were rather creative in expressing themselves, in my opinion. Please take a moment to enlarge these images and read them...





Pretty interesting reading, eh?!
Here's to Good Health in 2009
