About this work


Promotional magazine insert for Sunlight Soap, possibly from the 1920s. The front has a colour illustration of a very large black woman in red headscarf, purple dress and white apron loading the laundry she has just done onto a basket held by a small black boy above his head. They are standing in a green field with a line of clothes drying behind them. The detergent requires "no rubbing, no boiling".
