Facets of Public Health in Early Twentieth-Century Bombay focuses on some aspects of public health in the first three decades of the twentieth-century in Bombay Presidency. We begin with a review of the Western and Ayurvedic medicines, infant foods, tonics, and toiletries, advertised in contemporary English language newspapers, to evaluate how far the copy reflected contemporary social perceptions and notions of health. An attempt is made to understand the health of men and women textile mill workers of Bombay and Ahmedabad and the welfare measures provided to them.
