1904 Memphis Sanatorium advertisement


















This ad is from the Memphis Polk 1904 directory.  Of interest is the language letting the reader know that take home remedies were available for those who could not be inpatient.  Also of interest is the language noting that the methods employed to cure the various maladies were scientific.  The word scientific was often used in the 1800’s and early 1900’s to lend credibility to claims of superior ideas and methods which in modern times would be labeled as false advertising.
