Chinese product poster with a calendar for 1929. The poster is advertising Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pale People, an iron rich tonic for sufferers of anaemia, depression and lack of energy. The text at the bottom of the poster promotes several other medicines sold under the Dr. Williams brand including for skin problems, for children and for indigestion.

 

The Chinese characters in the sky identifies the background as 'Hong Kong Night Scene', with the lights of Central and Mid-levels and a small sailing boat in the harbour.

 

It is rare to find a Chinese calendar poster illustrated with a Hong Kong view.
