I hope you've enjoyed the daily posts during December - I've had fun compiling them! I leave you with a festive late-19th century trade card for Burdock Blood Bitters or 'B.B.B.' This famous tonic, which was around 20% alcohol, was advertised as the solution to numerous conditions including indigestion, flatulence and hysteria. So it's particularly appropriate for Christmas. . Burdock Blood Bitters, late 19thC

Thank you to everyone who has supported The Quack Doctor throughout the year.


I wish you all a cheerful Christmas and a relatively disease-free 2014.
