Loasby's lung tonic

Loasby's lung tonic

When this lung tonic began to be sold in New Zealand in 1911 it came with a pamphlet that described the medicine as containing no opiates. This was a response to the increasing public concern and legislative restrictions against the use of opiates and other drugs in patent medicines.
