Kathy Herrin Presents

Medicine Story

The days of the old time traveling medicine shows seem a distant memory. Join us for a glimpse into some of the history surrounding this phase of American merchandising and entertainment. Find out more about “snake oil” and intriguing patent remedies, all touting to “cure what ails you.” Surprisingly, some are still on the market today! This is a PowerPoint presentation that includes  fascinating photos. Time allowing, we may even view part of a documentary that re-created a medicine show.
