    Agh! Laxative tablets that taste like candy! Imagine if they were confused! BTW your link on SS is incorrect.

    I’ll change my link.

    I’m sure children would confuse the laxatives for candies — especially if they can’t read.

    It’s interesting to see a Lippincott & Co. selling clothes. There is/was also a Lippincott publisher/book seller. My favorite of these is the laxative tablets. I hope they were mild!

    Fancy having to look at that Lippincott frontage every time you walked down the street.. Just a little bit overstated !

    I have to agree with you: from both an artistic and an historical point of view, few things beat old adverts.
