Dr Wilson Gibb’s electric massage rollers 1902

Dr Wilson Gibb’s electric massage roller seems to have been spectacular – check out this ad. From plump to slim with a mere roll of the roller:

Any woman may achieve beauty at home and unaided … Purely vegetable. Harmless and positive.

We have digitised a rather splendid 1902 publication Tourists’ guide to Canterbury.

I will share some of the interesting ads and pictures from it in a series of posts – there’s lots of information about local businesses and places in 1902.
