This is an advertisement for Brooke's soap. Monkey Brand soap was introduced in around 1899 as a scouring soap. Sidney & Harry Gross opened a small factory in Philadelphia. The company moved to Port Sunlight and the name Benjamin Brooke was used to sell the soap. The monkey brand soap was popular, as were the adverts which usually featured monkeys washing dishes, or involved in other household tasks.
