This is the reverse of the leaflet.

This is an advertisement for Mycrom Fly Gum. Flies as well as other insects were a large problem for those living in the 19th centuries. Refrigerators had not yet been introduced into the average home and so food was kept in pantries and on shelves. It was covered with gauze and muslin and was usually eaten within a day of purchase however the raw food attracted flies and often it was very difficult to get rid on them.
