Guinness is good for you Medicinal Advert


Petite but interesting Guinness newspaper advert from the 1920s extolling the benefits of drinking Guinness especially when recovering from the Flu,thats if one was lucky to survive considering Influenza had a massive morbidity and mortality rate 100 years ago.The ad features testimonials from various  physicians and as we see elsewhere in this emporium, if Guinness was good enough for Arkle the legendary racehorse ,its good enough for us mere mortals !It is unclear how the esteemed doctors were renumerated for their product endorsement -whether payment was in pounds, shillings & pence or in pints !
