Picture of the Week: The Goose Grease Man

Share Button

 Here comes the “Goose Grease” Man!

 Are you as excited as we are for the N.C. State Fair? Just one more day until the fun begins. Check out one of my favorite ads from the North Carolina State Fair Premium lists.

The “Goose Grease” Man appears on page 79 of the  1909 premium list.   This advertisement for the Goose Grease Company of Greensboro, North Carolina extols the healing power of their products Goose Grease liniment  and Mother’s Joy. It apparently cured pneumonia.  Other Goose Grease Company ads appear in the 1911 (page 68), 1910 (page 73) and  1913 (page 28) premium lists.

Do you have a favorite ad from the premium lists?
