1917 Advertisement for Zam-Buk

This fantastically named ointment is about as Edwardian as it gets - this green, uniquely smelling salve was a sort of 'cure all' ointment for cuts, bad skin and other ailments, and features often in Edwardian magazines and other literature containing advertisements for the Leeds manufactured Zam-Buk. It is now available again, produced by Rose & Co. Apocathery and is very popular once again, so buy some while you can - a small tin lasts a very long time, i've had my tin for nearly a year and despite using it very often still have most of the tin left!
