Edward Boom, Homeopathic Vet

Published by:

Edward Boom, Homeopathic Veterinary Surgeon

For this ad from the 1893 Albany Directory, Hoxsie has no answers, only questions. Such as:

  • Dr. Boom?
  • Homeopathic Veterinary Surgeon?
  • Does “and Dentist” refer to veterinary dentistry, or was he a people dentist as a sideline?
  • His reference was a brewery? (This one actually makes sense, as the breweries had large teams of horses to pull the beer wagons.)
