There's tonic in the air!
Actually, it's called air conditioning. This is an ad for air conditioning.
Supposedly it made a better environment in which to heal.
I mean, like, who wants to sweat when you have measles?
Take a good look at the photo.
Doctor, nurse, three young male patients.
This child obviously need assistance with ambulating.
The two kids in bed don't even look sick.
Is this some wierd hospital stuck between "The Twilight Zone" and "Groundhog Day"?
They've all aged at least 50 years (including the nurse and doctor).

The two guys in bed still don't look sick.
The kid still needs assistance ambulating.

I do believe they still think Franklin Delano Roosevelt is President.
Someone should break the news to them.....
So you see, air conditioning didn't do a thing for these people.
Another case of false advertising.
