Dr Williams' 'Pink Pills', London, England, 1850-1920

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.
