Research Facts
Askit Powders were invented in Sweden in 1903 by the physician Herman Hjorton and manufactured under licence in Glasgow from 1917. In Sweden it was sold as Hjorton’s Powders after being invented by physician Herman Hjorton. By the 1950s it was shipping worldwide to expat Scots in Canada, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa.
Key ingredient Phenacetin was first developed in 1887 and was discovered to ease headaches and fevers – but also cause renal failure with prolonged use.
A heavy marketing campaign targeted woman with slogans including ‘Askit fights the miseries’. They contained aspirin and caffeine along with the painkilling drug phenacetin, which was found to be highly addictive.
A link with the powder’s popularity and an increase in renal failure was made in the early 50s but phenacetin wasn’t removed from the product until 1966. Phenacetin was a great pain killer but it also gave people a buzz. The Askit Powder Company in Sweden and Glasgow also knew their products were causing deaths throughout the 1950s.
It was made in Glasgow in 1917 with the First World War coming to an end so there was a lot of walking wounded and people in pain.
With Askit there was no need to go to the doctors; you just went to your local shop to self-medicate.
The remedy was produced by Glasgow firm Askit Limited before being sold on to pharmaceutical firm Roche in the 70s. It was later taken over by German-based giants Bayer, who finally discontinued all Askit products in 2006.

Research Facts
Dr. Francis Fox was the house surgeon to the Derbyshire General Dispensary, and in 1827, announced his invention of "glass leeches", a new form of cupping cup with a wide, curved neck and oval belly that hung downwards. This shape imitated the natural shape and manner of hanging of a leech, and so Fox named his invention after them. Fox announced his invention in The Lancet, a prominent medical journal, and in the years after his announcement, continued to provide the journal with updates on how much better the glass leeches performed than regular cups. They made it less likely for the patient to be burned in the process of cupping as the flame was kept farther away from the skin, and the glass leech only needed to be applied twice after scarification instead of the common three times. Fox claimed that his glass leeches could be easily removed by an attendant so that the operator need not even be present. The glass leech could draw on average 7 and 3/4 ounces of blood in 16 minutes.
W. B. Hilliard was established in 1834, in Glasgow, Scotland; there were four different business addresses until about 1920. In 1878, it became W. B. Hilliard & Sons when Hilliard brought his two sons on as partners. Joseph B. Hilliard owned an instrument case which was carried by Dr. Livingstone, the explorer.
Cupping was popular in the 19th century; heated cups would be applied to bring blood up to the surface of the skin; lamps, syringes and / or stop-cocks were often included in cupping sets to help create a vacuum using heat. Often, a piece of lint and/or paper was lit on fire and placed in the cup. In dry cupping, the cup would be applied first and the blood drawn using the scarificator after the blood was brought to the surface. In wet cupping, blood was drawn first with the scarificator and then the cup was applied, so that the blood was drawn out by the vacuum and pooled in the cup.

Research Facts
Dr. William Hunter (1718 - 1783) was a Scottish anatomist and physician born in East Kilbride, South Lanarkshire. After studying divinity athe University of Glasgow, he went into medicine in 1737, studying under William Cullen. He was trained in anatomy at St. George's Hospital, London, and specialized in midwifery. In 1764 he became physician to Queen Charlotte; elected Fellow of the Royal Society in 1767 and Professor of Anatomy to the Royal Academy in 1768.
In the 1950 – 60s this portrait collection was compiled by Dr. Thomas Gibson, and later by Dr. Etherington, from old publications to create a historical medical gallery of pioneers of modern medical sciences for teaching medical students at Queen’s University, Kingston. Many of these prints do not indicate the date of the publication or source. Original prints are heavily glued to thick paper backing. Prints were framed at Kirkpatrick’s Art & Flower Store in Kingston, Ontario, as noted on the blue paper labels on the reverse.

Research Facts
Dr. Gregory (1803 - 1858) was a professor of chemistry in 1837 at the Andersonian Institution, Glasgow; 1839 at King's College, Aberdeen and in 1844 at Edinburgh University. Known for "Gregory's Powder", a mixture of rhubard rhizome, ginger and magnesium carbonate, which was for over 150 years one of the most prescribed medicines in Pharmacopoeia.
In the 1950 – 60s this portrait collection was compiled by Dr. Thomas Gibson, and later by Dr. Etherington, from old publications to create a historical medical gallery of pioneers of modern medical sciences for teaching medical students at Queen’s University, Kingston. Many of these prints do not indicate the date of the publication or source. Original prints are heavily glued to thick paper backing.

Research Facts
Sir Robert Christison (1797 - 1882) was a Scottish toxicologist and physician; was an authority on poisons and published numerous articles on the topic.
In the 1950 – 60s this portrait collection was compiled by Dr. Thomas Gibson, and later by Dr. Etherington, from old publications to create a historical medical gallery of pioneers of modern medical sciences for teaching medical students at Queen’s University, Kingston. Many of these prints do not indicate the date of the publication or source. Original prints are heavily glued to thick paper backing. Prints were framed at Kirkpatrick’s Art & Flower Store in Kingston, Ontario, as noted on the blue paper labels on the reverse.
