Toxic effects of alcohol: a sample room and its samples (1902)

A saloon keeper in front of a morbid saloon window display. The window display sign says: "SHOW WINDOW EXHIBIT. WHAT OUR LIQUORS CAN DO. GENUINE SPECIMENS MADE ON THE PREMISES." In the window display are five people, four labeled with their alcohol-induced problems: madman, tramp, convict, and idiot child (fetal alcohol syndrome). The fifth person, a woman, appears depressed or confused. (Source: "Blasts" from the Ram's Horn. Chicago, The Ram's Horn Co., 1902.)
