Tropon Chocolade-Cacao. 1900.
Little is known about this image outside of a brief reference in the December 1900 issue of The Poster, wherein it was shown without text, and yet identified as an advertisement for Tropon Chocolade. Described as a ‘window-bill,’ one can assume this was an in-store display and not ever a street poster, tantalizing young mothers to purchase Tropon hot chocolate for their children. From a scientific perspective, Tropon-Chocolade is actually an old way of making hot cocoa by blending it with a water-soluble protein derived from fish and animal flesh.
