Loisand, press Browse for the first and then before you post press 'more attachments' for the second and subsequent attachments. They all load and them you post them all together O0

Great adverts, my dad took Carter's Little Liver Pills, much easier to say. I can remember all the others :)

I can only bring to mind the advert "Are you too fat - too fat - too fat?? Take Ford Pills, Ford Pills, Ford Pills" - well it kept you active, so to speak :)

Alfie those were for the lads in the War, the earlier advert was 81/2d for 10. I think my dad earned about £3.00 a week in the 40's. He smoked 10 a day.

alfie, in old lsd 50d was 4s 2d or 4 x 12 = 48 + 2. So 7x8 = 56 + 7x1/2 = 591/2d = 4s 111/2d - I think :-\
