Many of the items we purchased ranged from the 1920s onwards.
The central picture shows an industrial landscape of factories and gas holders, arising from which like a Genie, is a green figure personifying the diseases that arise from industry.Facing him is a healthy man, presumably representing the health that is said to come from the use of Morris Evans products.
