this is your periodic reminder that old-timey medicines did not fuck around

Yeah that’d probably handle a cough.

CHLOROFORM?!

That’ll do it.

Back when medicine was a party in a bottle.

This week we started the Victorian era in summer camp.  I had to explain early-modern medicine to the 7 to 11-year-olds without discussing heroin or vibrators.  The struggle was real.

I love how people reference medical documents from this era as proof that corsets cause harm to people. *facepalm*
