This is an original 1931 color print ad for P and G White Naptha Soap, featuring a phenomenal illustration of children at a circus. This soap was used in laundry, as well as for washing dishes. Much of the soap was utilized during World War I and World War II; thus P and G White Laundry Soap replaced the Naptha soap, as it was required for war efforts. This company is now known as Procter & Gamble.
