About this work
Leaflet advertising advertising Hudson's Dry Soap detergent. The front is a colour illustration showing a man (footman?) running with a box of the soap being chased by 3 women and a page inside a stately home corridor. A fourth woman has fallen on the floor. Robert Spear Hudson (d.1884) invented the first dry soap powder, "Hudson's Dry Soap" in 1837 in his small pharmacy in West Bromwich, England, moving to Liverpool in the 1880s. He advertised extensively, first locally and then nationally, as his business and use of his products grew. The firm was taken over by Lever Brothers Ltd. (now part of Unilever) in 1908.
