Caradium Hair Restorer, 1920s

1920radium

I found  this online in A History of Feminine Fashion, a promotional booklet for the House of Worth.  (Check out http://www.archive.org for the full publication.)  There was no date, but it was obviously published in the 1920s.

Lets hope the "Radio-active water" was very dilute, otherwise the people using it might have found their grey hair turned into glow-in-the-dark hair!
