Jayne's Carminative Balsam

Jayne's Carminative Balsam
The front of this card depicts a beautiful woman leaning over a Moses basket in which a young child rests. The scene depicted is one of the seashore with the ocean in the background. The reverse of the card proclaims the scene 'Summer at the Seaside' and the two figures on the front as 'an anxious Italian mother, seated with her convalescing child on the beach inhaling the balmy, health-reviving air of the Ocean.' The card provides warning against excessive food and drink in hot summer months and offers remedies for common maladies resulting from such excess. It advises one to invest in a 'double-sized bottle of Jayne's Carminative Balsam' to treat maladies such as Cramps, Colics, and Bowel Complaints. It further advises the use of Jayne's Tonic Vermifuge for dyspepsia in adults and worms in children. Presented by Hunt & Hunter. Lowell, Kent Co., Michigan.
