    I'm working on a special project at work and recently came across a publication from the Bangor FD in 1890 . . . thought you folks might get a kick out of some of these ads.

    Ad for Moxie

    Ad for either a wood or coal furnace with a down draft design

    Ad for a hot water boiler that can be cleaned by your "servant girl" while under fire

    Ad for Electric Lights . . . they're cheaper than grease!

    1890 ad for Peavey Manufacturing . . . yeah . . . they've been around that long.

    Moxie Nerve Food. Is that something one would eat, or drink? Or both? (In my case, I'm thinking neither. ;lol).
