The 1910 World Almanac was only 25 cents, although was probably pricy for the time. Looking back from 2016, the many ads it contained are quite amusing. There was no attempt to tread lightly on the customer's feelings: you are fat, and you should buy this product to fix it! And forget an explanation of how it was supposed to work, just take our word for it. It's also possible that readers actually tried to guess which drawing of these men was supposed to be 50 and which was 30. Read about electric corsets, electric hairbrushes, how to become stout, a reducing "treatment" with no clue whether it's a pill or salve or machine, the burglar-proof grave vault, a newspaper that touts "the largest amount of advertising" as a selling point, and more at Vintage Everyday. -via the Presurfer
