Inspiration: A strange book written by William Radam whose story I retold with images.
Radam made a famous cure-all medicine, and demand overwhelmed supply. He could not make enough. People claimed it cured ailments of all sort. His work inspired the creation of the FDA. They confiscated and destroyed all shipments of his elixir. Unbroken bottles of Radam's "Microbe Killer" are valuable to collectors now.
