This vintage poster print features a photograph of an old enamel advertising sign for the now defunct Hudson’s Soap. Probably dating from the late 19th to early 20th century, the advert extolls the virtues of Hudson’s Extract of Soap. “It makes grease fly! Never clogs! Leaves no smell! Knives, Forks & Spoons and Anything Washed with it become Scrupulously Clean and Sweet.” But that’s not all, folks! “It’s equally good for washing clothes!!!” One lady points wearily to the poster, while the other two look distinctly unimpressed! The little dog looks a bit bemused, too. We’re not surprised Hudson’s Soap went to the wall! Fittingly, the poster is nailed to an old worn fence that’s also seen better days. Very atmospheric – and funny! The photograph was taken at Summerlee Heritage Centre, Lanarkshire, Scotland, UK, Europe.
