Sunlight Soap – The Illustrated London News – Saturday 29th November 1902


Seeing these advertisements for Sunlight Soap reminded me of the book Campaigns of curiosity where the American Journalist, Elizabeth L. Bank worked as a maid, a flower girl and a laundry girl writing of her experiences working in what were seen and menial jobs (Campaigns of curiosity; journalistic adventures of an American girl in London )  However the top image would seem to be more consistent with Bank’s experience rather than the sanitised image of the “Laundress of today”
