that cough needs Zubes - A troublesome cough needs Zubes. So does a cold. So does a sore throat. Why? Look what Zubes contain. Balsam of Tolu to soothe tickling throats...

I lived, as a lad, next door but one to a line manageress at the Zubes factory.
We were occasionally given the odd tin of Zubes.
They were quite a good decongestant, and, always having colds (still do!) I was pleased to have them. They worked better than some of the modern "cough remedies" do. John.
