This Victorian trading card features the face of a pretty young lady peeking through a torn newspaper. The heading of the newspaper is Hood’s Latest and the year was 1884. The advertising on the card is for Hood’s Sarsaparilla – a preparation of sarsaparilla, dandelion, mandrake, yellow dock and other remedial agents, to purify the blood and strengthen the system. 100 doses cost one dollar. Here is the back of the card. Click on images to enlarge.
I just *love* today’s image (Hood’s Sarsaparilla)! Thank you!
