1891 Health Advertisements
In the late 1800s, you could head to the local druggist to get "nerve" medicine . . . . . . or send a letter to New York for the latest cure for consumption . . . . . . or head to the Lockwood Exchange Hotel, on South Grand Avenue, to have a traveling dentist work on your teeth. Oh, the choices! All of these advertisements were found in an issue of The Fowlerville Review. And, just in case I haven't mentioned why articles and advertisements are shown as above (white on dark), it is because these are snapshots taken of microfilm found at the Howell library.
