Abstract:
Advertisement for Wampole's Preparation, "which, although it conatins all of the flesh-producing properties of the cod liver, extracted by us from fresh cod livers, is entirely free from its taste, odour and appearance. It is palatable as honey, and parents whose children are sick cannot resort to it a day too soon." Card features a very young girl wearing a white dress with a pink sash holding a bottle of Wampole's Preparation in her right hand and feeding from it via a tube leading from the bottle to her mouth. Card verso features the same girl with text superimposed over her dress praising Wampole's chemists for their ability to disguise the taste, odor, and appearance of the product's basic ingredient, cod liver oil.
