World War Madame Tussaud’s Exhibition Catalogue
date given but we have found a reference –“now abridged owing to the War” and
we fairly confidently date this to 1917 or 1918.
paper quality – poor
– poor but intact
Ads are particularly pleasing:
Nutritious Custard –“ rich in fat and just what we all now need”
Real Turtle Soup made from the finest West India Turtles in DELECTALAND,
Watford. (Someone from Watford please
tell us this place still exists!)
use BUMSTED’s SALT which is pure salt.
(give the copy writer a medal)
And we think the ad for Lockyers (see below) is in particularly bad taste given that this was produced only 5 or so years after the sinking of the Titanic.
And there are endless lists of the current exhibits of course.
