…..I can’t quite believe this poster! And I’m not entirely sure I’m supposed to!…..
Whilst, I whole heartedly love watching TV Series such as the BBC’s Victorian Pharmacy, I don’t remember having seen such a cure advocated or advertised. If only asthma cigarettes were truely a cure! There’d no doubt be a lot less wheezy smokers or COPD sufferers out there. And at a time when everybody is advocating a ‘smoke free’ lifestyle too.
I particularly love the ‘Not recommended for children under 6’ line!
I suppose back in the Victorian times children did pick up the habit very young. Oh Well, that’s history!
…..I hasten to add though, that I think I have got wind that this poster was a spoof from a campaign in the 1970s. You may even know the truth behind this? Interesting talking point though!…..
