The cover is so striking on this one, but that's not the only color image this almanac has. There is color at the back cover too, but the show stealers are the gorgeous color ads on reverse of both front and back covers.

Condition: Very good


This has to be the oddest trade card ever produced. I've had it for many years and, as you can see, it is part of the montage photo at the top of my website. I have finally decided to let it go even though I have still never figured out why the guy's head's ripped open to expose a rather creepy child inside. The turns of the "paper" look so real it's amazing. The card was issued to sell "the greatest of all blood purifiers." It's larger than average and measures 4-1/2"x6... View more info

Arnheim's liniment is best known for its slogan "For Man and Beast." It's an example of truth in advertising because Arnheim's peddled his product for both horses and people.

I thought when I bought a couple of these magazines that the McCleary Sanitarium in Excelsior Springs, Missouri was for TB patients, but alas it was not. Dr. A.S. McCleary founded the sanitarium in 1901 for people with gastro-intestinal problems. His specialty though was curing hemorrhoids without surgery and his well advertised promise that if he failed to do so patients didn't have to pay. Surprisingly, the sanitarium stayed open until 1974. The magazine was sent to fo... View more info
