An original advertising poster for Hudson's Dry Soap.
In 1837 Robert Spear Hudson opened a shop in High Street, West Bromwich. He started making soap powder in the back of this shop by grinding the coarse bar soap of the day with a mortar and pestle. Before that, people had had to make soap flakes themselves and by 1850 he started producing Hudson's Dry Soap Powder.
There are the usual scuffs, marks and scratches as expected from an item of this age and material but the colours are still strong and vibrant.
