Products that have stood the test of time, on the shelves at Nau's Enfield Drugs in Austin.

 

Williams Mug Shaving Soap ("For a lasting lather"), a Pinaud item called "Lilac Vegetal" (regularly see their "Clubman" in the barber shop), assorted Roger & Gallet soaps and scents, and, just out of view, "Magic," a shaving powder "specially formulated for black men to help stop razor bumps."

 

Combe, the company that markets Williams Mug Shaving Soap, also handles Brylcreem (hair pomade originating in England in 1928) and Aqua-Velva (which you know now as an aftershave but might be interested to find was first sold as a mouthwash, in 1929. Ew.)
