Antique Graphics Wednesday – 1910 Roach Killer Advertisement

Here’s a creepy crawly illustration from a
roach killer advertisement from a 1910 “The Housekeeper” magazine.
It’s creepy enough for some Halloween projects.
This is the complete advertisement, in the natural color tone.
I have no idea what “electric” paste was, but if
I could sympathize with a roach, (and I can’t)
I’d feel a little sorry for this guy who is loosing limbs as he walks
away from the stuff.
