Sapolio Ad, Images 2-3

From Elizabeth Bishop and the Literary Archive by Bethany Hicok

  • Page two shows the "Modern Household Fairy" arriving with a bar of Sapolio Soap for the white woman of the house. Page three shows the two black servants joyously and now successfully cleaning the pots and pans. The black maid can now see herself in the clean mirror as she gazes into it.
