The Carbolic Holy Hand Grenade Cure of 1889 – 1890

We watched this yesterday morning. Well, I tried to and was bombarded with comments.

Anyhoo. Carbolic acid via a Holy Grenade puffed up your nose will get rid a Coroney ?

False As Fuck Advertising.

Here is where the law of small print and t’c and c’s was enforced in GB. Or so they say!

Frigging women – taking a man all the way to court to £100 as the advert said if the HHgrenade failed to get rid of the “ASIATIC/RUSSIAN” Flu cooties.

Tut.

P.S. Did Jack the Ripper – flourished 1888 – die of the Russian Flu ?
