Salves, balms and homespun remedies

Salves, balms and homespun remedies

 26th May 2018

QUEENSLAND’S record of invention and innovation extends to the design and manufacture of familiar potions and extraordinary strategies to popularise them. Queenslanders were also ready adopters of similar remedies devised overseas and marketed through personal contact.

This talk examines the history of three Queensland remedies—two of which were marketed well beyond our shores—and looks at the ways in which an American company achieved deep market penetration in Queensland for its wide range of ‘cure-alls’, says well-known historian Helen Gregory, who will be the speaker at our May meeting.

All are invited to attend on Saturday 26th May | 2-4pm | Merthyr Road Uniting Church Centre.

All are welcome. Afternoon tea will be provided.
