Title

Seven Ages of Dope

Description

Cartoon from the March 28, 1906, issue of the satirical magazine Puck titled "The Seven Ages of Dope," critiques the widespread sale and use of adulterated products. The captions read: "At first the infant, dopily mewling in the nurse's arms. And then the schoolboy with his satchel filled with 'pre-served' beef sandwiches. And then the lover with a box of bon-bons stiffened with paraffin. And then the soldier, full of strange oaths because his rations are embalmed. And then the justice, in belly with cold storage capon lined. The lean and slippered pantaloon, piping in childish treble for his daily dope. Last scene of all—sans teeth, sans taste, sans stomach, sans everything."
