Presumably it was a very mild product.     You don't see salesmanship like that anymore!

OK it's very likely Santa Monica, but you never know! Butts is also an unfortunate name when possibly talking about SM (not that I know what that is of course!). Perhaps it should be called the 'Satan Monica Daily Press'.

Stainburn Terrace was the house of my Uncle Sam & Auntie Dorothy Woolf. I lived there from 1977 for a few years! Sam being the brother of my grandma and of course Bernard Sloman

The box complete with an unused bar inside, has been donated to me by my elderly aunt, so it will be returning to LEEDS later this week.

Does the museum have a collection of things "Made in Leeds" - seem to recall a glass case in the Leeds room with items like this though I don't recall if it was restricted to items manufactured in Leeds.
