Don’t Let $1.00 stand Between You And A Good Head Of Hair (Nov, 1931)

Don’t Let $1.00 stand Between You And A Good Head Of Hair

For years I suffered from dandruff and falling hair, until a friend told me an old Canadian method. This treatment will stop falling hair, eradicate dandruff and grow new hair. My baldness has been replaced with luxuriant new hair. Dozens of my friends have had equal results. The method is simple, easy and positive. Send me $1.00 to cover costs and I will mail you this prescription and method of treatment with my positive guarantee that you will be satisfied or I will return your money. A few cents at any drugstore buys the necessary ingredients. You will thank me many times, as my friends have, for telling this method which has succeeded where everything else has failed. $1.00 only, and your hair trouble is solved for the rest of your life. STED PITT, Dept. 1-0, 153 Court Street, New Haven,Conn.

    Where can I purchase this amazing product?

    RatherAmusing: The ad indicates the ingredients are at any “drugstore”. So you’d spend more than the money sent for the promised prescription. So just visit any drugstore today and they’ll gladly sell you something just as amazing, already mixed and ready to go.

    That’s a fairly bizzare graphic. I guess $1 was the amount they felt was too small for most people to pursue a refund for after they tried the method and found it didn’t work.

    PROOF! At last, that the tiny-headed homo floriensis existed into modern times.

    Are you kidding Myles? A dollar in 1931 would buy a decent steak dinner. It’s the inflation-adjusted equivalent of about $14.00 now.

    The price may have been psychologically “low” being just “one” of something, but that was real money in those days.

    Craig: Funny you should put it that way. Check out this menu for the ESTHER KATHERINE TEA ROOM at 5258 Sunset Blvd., Los Angeles, CA, from 11/25/1931

    Turkey dinner with all the trimmings was a buck.

    jayessell: For real. It’s a shame that didn’t have prices on it, but I’m glad you found it. I liked this one too with the eighty five cent t-bone dinner or the one dollar prime rib:

    I’d agree again with Craig that back when that ad was written a dollar was a useful amount of money.
