Dr Williams’ ‘Pink Pills’ were advertised as an iron rich tonic for the blood and nerves to treat anaemia, clinical depression, poor appetite and lack of energy. The tablets were originally advertised as “Pink Pills for Pale People”. Users of the product claimed the pills could even cure paralysis. The patent for the pills was bought by an American politician, Senator George T Fulford (1852-1905) in 1890. Fulford made the product an international success. Credit: Science Museum, London. CC BY

However, please bear with our slightly jumbled state over the next few weeks as we unpack and rearrange our shelves. If you find that a book you need isn’t in place on the shelf, let a member of staff know and we will locate it for you.
