RMHH4EBE–Good Morning! Have you used Pears' Soap? (racist advert)
RM2B017CY–UK: A Pear's Soap advertisement in the United Kingdom in 1903. In 1903, Great Britain was anything but the multi-ethnic nation it is today. Sensitivity toward ethnic minorities was practically non-existent as can be seen from this commercial for soap. The implication is that the soap is so good that it can 'wash' the colour from an African child and make him white.
