just what the doctor ordered

Another example of honest advertising, by salesmen with integrity:

In small print: "I have for many years past ordered Guinness to my patients. ... a single glass of Guinness has often been a turning point for the better."

Advertisements from 1937-1938.

For some reason this reminds me of Mad Men.

I had no idea Guinness was therapeutic. Must drink more! :)

That is awesome! I wonder what people will think of the ads we see today in another 50 years.

Heheheh. I bet a good many folks believe that having a glass of Guinness is a turning point for the better. :)
