Beard and Circuses

Ladies' Journal ca 1888 Dorenwend's Hair Remover

Eureka! You too can escape the sideshow life with help from the amazing Mr. Dorenwend of Toronto - purveyor of the "Eureka" Hair Destroyer.

That is quite a before picture. Isn't that Ulysses Grant in a fancy dress? What's he doing up in Canada, anyway!

If I were Mr. Dorenwend's PR person I would advise him not to use the tag line "A Quick Shave" though, it implies that the Eureka stuff isn't quite strong enough without a little follow up with a razor.

For more Dorenwend amusement, see Madame Boudoir and friend here.
