There was a time in Vermont where “whatever ails ya” had a remedy
and many of those remedies where made down the street, in the county or in the
state. The Vermont Historical Society
has a wonderful collection of patent medicine and cure posters that show just
how local and interesting cures for common health problems were handled. You can almost hear the barker setting up his
stand in the main square and pulling out his bottle of remedy for folks to
buy.Original photos courtesy of vermonthistory.org.
