1918 Patent Medicine Advertising Trade Card - Hood's Sarsaparilla and Peptiron Laxative -  Little Boy in Pastel1918 Patent Medicine Advertising Trade Card - Hood's Sarsaparilla and Peptiron Laxative -  Little Boy in Pastel

1918 advertising trade card for Hood's Sarsaparilla & Peptiron Laxative patent medicine products, with a lovely pastel image of a young boy in a straw hat and play-suit feeding ducks on a pond - and captioned "Waste not, Want not". The manufacturer, C. I. Hood & Company of Lowell, Massachusetts, is probably best known for its popular sarsaparilla.

Hood's sarsaparilla was marketed as a blood-purifying and vitalizing medicine Peptiron was a chocolate laxative pill made with iron, nux (?), pepsin and celery. The back has a full page of advertising copy on both products.

Image is copyright 1918 by C. I. Hood Co. Card measures 4-5/8" x 3-1/8".

PHOTO NOTE: The scanning process distorts the clarity of the images displayed, particularly in the gallery view. The muted "grainy" look is definitely a distortion. The clarity is excellent when viewed in person. Slight creases, small blemishes, minor defects and light soiling (in any) are exaggerated by the scanning process, and much less noticeable when viewed in person.

CONDITION NOTE: Good condition for its age, with slightly blunted corners. The right lower corner has detached and has been repaired. Although the break line is slightly visible, the central image has not been significantly compromised. There are no other tears or creases. The back has light discoloration from glue residue where it was attached to an album. However, this discoloration is much less distracting in person than it appears in these photos.
