Absorbine Jr.
Black and white 5 3/4" x 8 3/4" ad for this Antiseptic Liniment. Recommending actions that you won't see advertised now they encourage you to "Treat sore throat - both inside and out". The ad claims that if you have a sore throat you should use their product on the outside of your throat and mix a few drops in water and gargle with it. The ad claims there are many other uses for this product that are mentioned on a "Timely Suggestion" sheet that is packed with each bottle.

Bayer

The ad headline claims that "It happens within Two Seconds". This ad is larger than my scanner bed so the outer edges of the ad will not be visible in the scanned view.

Bayer
Black and white 4 3/4" x 10 3/4" ad for their Fassst Pain Reliever. The ad has a picture of a man on a racing motorcycle and the caption says that "The fastest Dirt Track Motorcycle travels 1 Kilometer in 19.3 seconds, but in only TWO SECONDS Bayer Aspirin is ready to go to work!". The ad text challenges you to prove this fact by dropping a Bayer Aspirin into a glass of water and you will see for yourself that it starts to dissolve within two seconds. It must have taken very little to convince us of things a long time ago.

Bayer
Black and white 5" x 13" ad for their Aspirin that are available as Children's Size Tablets. There are photos of three smiling children and the text assures you that these are offered in the "half an aspirin (size) doctors so often prescribe for children" (2 1/2 Grs) and that they are uncolored and unflavored so that your child will not mistake it for candy. This ad is taller than my scanner bed so the outer edges of the ad will not be visible in the scanned view.

Bayer
Black and white 5" x 10 3/4" ad for their Aspirin. The ad has a picture of a woman dressed up for the evening standing on her front steps talking to her husband who is preparing to get into their car. He pauses to ask her "...and shall I get some aspirin?" and she replies in a corrective manner "Yes, but be sure you get Bayer Aspirin". The ad headline explains that "She insists on Bayer Aspirin because she wants the BEST - even though it costs a few pennies more!".

Bayer
Black and white 9 1/2" x 13" ad for their Aspirin Products". The ad has a picture of a worried little boy lying in bed as his smiling mother feels his forehead with one hand while the other hand holds a bottle of Bayer Aspirin for Children. I am sure that the worried look on the boy's face has nothing to do with the fact that a black cat is sitting on his bed with a commanding look on it's face. The ad headline chides "When anyone in your family has a cold or flu...Doctors Say: 1. Keep him in bed, 2. Have him drink plenty of fluids and 3.Give him aspirin to reduce fever and relieve pain". At the botton of the ad are sample pictures of the regular Aspirin and Aspirin for Children. This ad is larger than my scanner bed so the outer edges of the ad will not be visible in the scanned view.

Bromo-Seltzer
Black and white 4 3/4" x 13" ad for the medicine from Emerson's that will solve a little bit of everything. There are pictures of three different people in the ad who, with different ailments, have completely recovered due to Bromo-Seltzer. There is a picture of a father who is now able to hoist his young son to his shoulders and play after taking Bromo-Seltzer to recover from "that big dinner". Next we have a couple overdressed for a game of table-tennis but the lady is now able to play just a few minutes after using Bromo-Seltzer to relieve the headache that was causing her nerves to scream. The last picture shows a happy couple dancing with the lady thanking her husband for thinking of Bromo-Seltzer to banish the headache that was destined to keep her from dancing. The text mentions the "FIVE medicinal ingredients" that stop a headache and its depressing after-effects. It talks about being used for over 40 years and reminds us that it is "Effective after the Fizz Stops as well as while it's Fizzing".

The ad headline claims you can "Get faster pain relief with Bufferin. Acts twice as fast as aspirin! Doesn't disagree with you!" It shows the four steps that a pain reliever tablet will go through and explains why Bufferin works better and faster than aspirin before stating "No wonder so many people have changed to Bufferin!".
