Vintage pharmaceutical ads

Pete Quily, author of the Adult ADD Strengths blog sent me a link to some vintage pharmaceutical ads from the 1930s to the 1970s. My favorites are the ones that show crazy-looking people, such as the ones for:

  • Thorazine (Tyrant in the House?)
  • Bentyl (No “Belladonna BACKFIRE”)
  • Pacatal (Back from the brink)
  • Serpasil (Raise the emotional threshold against everyday stress)
  • Butisol Sodium (Mabel is unstable)
