Intent

That doctor looks like he's about to fire a 15 inch gun on a battleship. Yep, life was simpler then.

A blast from the past.

Or, a spray from back in the day.

That sure is a complicated contraption to do the same job as the simple little plastic bottles I use for my allergies between Spring and Fall!

If ever a photo begged to be Farked

this would be it.

It's Hard To Believe

In this day and age, with all the nasal spray concoctions that are out there, back in that era a Doctor or his associate would apply the soothing balm to that pesky proboscus.
