Another piece of info for my memory banks. Everyday something new.
That was 72 years ago and in the USA they were already assailed by ads like the one for Lux. The first radio ad in the USA was 1922. Thankfully in the UK it took us until 1955 to have TV ads and 1973 until the first radio ad (excluding pirate radio).
But I bet those people in the remote parts of the USA were happy to live with the ads.
