Image description:

Advertisement for James S. Kirk & Company's Jap Rose soap featuring an illustration of a Japanese man and woman dressed in kimonos enclosed in a transparent soap bubble. The man holds the woman's shoulders and appears to be drawing her close. The copy indicates that because Jap Soap is transparent it "takes all dirt and perspiration with it, but leaves not an atom of anything behind."
