Carter’s

IMG_9527

A Curious Staple of Downtown Brattleboro, photographed here is a painted advertisement from the early 1900’s (restored in the 1980’s) for Carter’s Little Liver Pills.  Very popular in their time, these little liver pills supposedly cured headaches, constipation, dyspepsia (indigestion), and biliousness (excess bile).  This painting towers over pedestrians on Elliot Street, and adds a novel and comical flair to the neighborhood.
