Gypsy Creams


Woman's Own / 14th July 1967

Andrews for ‘inner cleanliness’? I always thought it was meant to help your body recover from over-indulgence in alcohol, rather than something you should take on a regular basis. Frankly, the link between a hangover aid and garden furniture is…interesting, to say the least.

God, no – it “keeps you regular.” My mother was a slave to the stuff for years. I could never stomach it, not even the short-lived fruit version they brung out at one point.

P.S. I love that they publicise a discount of £3 7/6 as 37/6 to make it look like more!

My friend and yours, Mr Barfe, also swears by it as a pick-me-up. I’ve never tried it myself. Good spot on the prices: I’d like to know more about whether there were any rules as to when you expressed prices in lsd or just sd, but your comment suggests not!

No idea, but I need to correct myself. I meant to put 67/6, which is obvious from the ad. Sorry – I’m a twit.

I thought that’s probably what you meant!

a very style of cartoon man was used in the late 60s… i’ve seen him elsewhere…
