Before Prohibition: Images from the preprohibition era

Images from the preprohibition era:
"Mrs. Winslow's Soothing Syrup was an indispensable aid to mothers and child-care workers. Containing one grain (65 mg) of morphine per fluid ounce, it effectively quieted restless infants and small children. It probably also helped mothers relax after a hard day's work."
Nice. I think only parents can appreciate this sentiment.
