V.L. Hansen

V. L. Hansen was the primary representative of the watermelon distributing company B.D. Anguish. 

The company was based in Chicago and owned by Dr. Anguish, the Watermelon Expert, who was quoted as saying, “ There is nothing better to keep yellow ‘janders,’ yellow fever and all the ails and ills of man and beast in the limelight than a good, ripe Watermelon.  They are also good for swelled heads and the good and bad liver.  So, keep your orders coming.”
