A post by fellow bloggers over at the curious eye reminded me that I have in my possession this remarkable tin which once contained Hack's cough sweets. When I glance at it I never fail to be amazed by it. Whoever thought it would be a great idea to depict an old bloke coughing up gawd knows what into a hanky? ... and the name - might as well call it phlegm's - whoever it was -you're fired! Still, I must like it or I wouldn't have been carrying it around with me all these years.
