This Ain’t Denmark, People

January_29_1891

This advertisement from the January 19, 1891 Chatham Record seems to take the opposite tack from last week’s entry.

The 60-point type gets your attention: Hello, they’re putting it right out there, aren’t they?

A second look shows what the ad is really up to: “Opium and whiskey habits cured at home without pain.”

Oh, okay.
