Vintage Keasbey & Mattison Ad: "Amazing Asbestos" (Surgeon, Powdered Asbestos)

Vintage cartoon-illustrated advertisement by former asbestos manufacturing giant, Keasbey & Mattison (K&M) of Ambler, Pennsylvania, titled "Amazing Asbestos".

 

K&M actually made a series of "AMAZING ASBESTOS" illustrated ads, each with unique, historical trivia about asbestos while touting the company's toxic products.

 

This ad indicates: "A surgeon performing a rare heart operation recently made use of powdered asbestos!"

 

"Recall that pioneer experiments with asbestos by Dr. R.V. Mattison led to many of its everyday uses - as in superior building materials!"

 

"For a smarter, more livable home, use Keasbey & Mattison APAC - made with the 'Magic Mineral' asbestos!"

 

STAY TUNED FOR MORE "AMAZING ASBESTOS" ADS.
