Every Picture Tells A Story - Agnes Bland's Kidneys Sheffield 1907

This advertisement is from the Yorkshire Telegraph and Star dated 26th February 1907. It refers to the problems Agnes Bland was having with her kidneys, and the measures she took to lessen her troubles. I believe that Agnes was my gran's Aunt. And of course she was a cousin to George Sanby who also had troubles with his kidneys (see previous post)

 According to the "Sheffield Evidence," Agnes troubles arouse from her working conditions and progressively got worse. But Doan's Pills came to her rescue.

Of course the mystery is why both George and Agnes feature in the advertisements seven years apart. And did they get remuneration for their testimonials?
