Rhyming Drugstore Advertisements (1885)
These rhyming advertisements were created by "commercial rhymist" W.N.Bryant for a variety of drugstores in the states of Texas, Louisiana, and Indian Territory. They contain some ingenious sections of poetic flair, and strangely all end on a cigar-related note. Not sure if too many people would quite have the patience these days to stay still for the time required to get through the whole thing - though with such enticing headlines as "Ah! There" and "Why will you die?", perhaps so.
