This charming little kit would make the perfect adoption object for the accident-prone individual, always one step away from a minor mishap. For this delightful soul, we introduce the ‘Harmsworth's Home Doctor Emergency Case’, a treasure chest of old-world wisdom that might just save the day.
If you're the type to trip over your own shoelaces, you’ll find an affinity with our unassuming case, given to us from Lingmoor Farm in Hutton-le-Hole. Inside, it holds the basic essentials of a First Aid Kit from the 1920s, when a little self-reliance was the order of the day.
With 21 distinctive items, this little medical time capsule would have been a companion to the ‘Harmsworth Home Doctor and Encyclopaedia of Good Health.’ It comes complete with detailed instructions, such as what to do in the event of an animal bite – from a viper or rabid beast (always handy) and a rather long list of the ever-so-important ‘don'ts’; there are a lot of those, because, let's face it, they’re always good to know.
For the adopter, and with our thanks, you will receive...
