    Drawn from the unrivalled collection of the British Library, this collection of over 200 newspaper, magazine and poster advertisements, dating from the 1880s to the 1920s, celebrates the art and imagination of advertisers selling everything from Crane's liver pills and Scrubb's Ammonia ('try it in your bath') to ocean cruises. Among the long-forgotten embrocations and gas valves are brands that are with us still - among them, Pears' Soap, Marmite, Guinness and Bird's Custard ('makes children sturdy!').
