For 50 years women in America relied on the Gold Dust Twins, Goldie and Dustie, to do their cleaning for them. Gold Dust Washing Powder was introduced in the 1880's. In 1902, two Black children, David Henry Snipe and a kid named Thomas, were chosen to pose as the Gold Dust Twins. Snipe was born in 1896 in New York and traveled through the U.S. and Europe with the vaudeville team Harvey and DeVore until 1921. By the 1930's the soap was no longer an attraction, but the Gold Dust Twins remained a part of the American popular culture through the collectibles that carried their images.
This particular ad was a Lord & Taylor Department Store ad.
