Hallelujah! A sensible newspaper advertisement (from 1909)
From the Mobile Press Register - Sunday, May 16, 1909
"Are You Tired of Being Thin? A 50 cent package of Dr. Whitney's Flesh Builder Sent Free. 'A perfect woman, All on earth above, To see is to admire; Admiring love.' Nature never intended anyone to be thin; it is an unnatural condition, and if the flesh-making functions are properly nourished you can secure permanently a pretty figure and a firm, well-rounded bust. Letters and photographs from them, which we will send you, are convincing."
Painting by Fernando Botero.
