Sanatogen Tonic Wine

Back in 2016, Paul posted some ads for Sanatogen Tonic Wine from early in the 20th century. Here are some more ads for this fine product, but from later in the century (1960s), in which the marketing team decided to focus on how this medicinal wine was the cure for a housewife's blues. Feeling bored at home, run-down by the kids? No problem, just take a little swig of Sanatogen and you'll be numb to your problems in no time! "That's lovely... that's better"

Were these ads before or after the Rolling Stones released 'Mother's Little Helper'?

Reminds me of the old joke: “I don’t have a drinking problem. I drink, get drunk, pass out — no problem!”
