This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what you read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you

    The Wellcome Collection has more adverts for Harness’ magnetic corsets and electropathic belts. Also, there’s this rather wonderful article from the June 1893 edition of the BMJ recounting the BMA’s tussle with Mr Harness: “the Medical Battery Company (that is, Mr Harness) “carried on so dishonest and disreputable a trade and business, and were so notorious and of such ill repute …”” He sued the BMJ, they stood their ground and he backed down.
