    Snow & Silver soap wrapper card
    Snow & Silver soap wrapper card
    A very rare Snow & Silver soap wrapper card issued for the Benjamin Harrison v. Grover Cleveland 1892 presidential campaign. Snow & Silver Soaps were manufactured by Thompson & Chute of Toledo, Ohio, the "Chute" half being George Maynard Chute, Sr. Photo courtesy of the Mike Chasar Blog Spot.
    Side-note: Mike was amused to later discover that the Chute-Thompson Mfg Co. took no chances of offending any of their customers: this side of the card is the Benjamin Harrison side. The other side of the card was the same poem with a picture of Grover Cleveland.

    Election day is near at hand,
    To choose the President of our land—
    One of honor, strength and hope,
    Who uses SNOW and SILVER soap.

    In every place, from every mouth,
    From east to west, from north to south,
    The people's voice will sure attest,
    That SNOW and SILVER are the best.

    The wrappers, too, will bring a treasure,
    Which gives unbounded joy and pleasure.
    Mail twenty in to our address,
    A gift most rare you will possess.
