Electric Inhaler Trade Card

The Electric Inhaler that doesn’t even use electricity! This card from the 1890s advertises inhaled pain relief for headache, neuralgia, and a variety of maladies – for only 25 cents with a money-back guarantee. Manufactured by Abbott’s Menthol Plaster Company in Worcester, Massachusetts, the novel idea of the face on the bottle probably appealed to all ages of pain sufferers. The little face invites the user to move his tongue (which is actually a little lever), which opens his eyes (which act as air inlet channels).
