Picture of Health: Images of Medicine and Pharmacy from the William H. Helfand Collection
Scenes of winter sports, walking on snowshoes and tobogganing, are put to use to advertise Lutted's Cough Drops. The illustrations are appropriate for a product used frequently in winter months, but there is no additional text to associate them with this medication. Although most nineteenth-century trade cards bear extravagant discussions of the benefits of the product advertised, in this case the name alone was deemed to be sufficient. William H. Helfand, from The Picture of Health: Images of Medicine and Pharmacy from the William H. Helfand Collection (1991), p. 116.
