"Zanol" brand Foot Powder, circa WWI-1920s.

Has anyone else seen a tin like this? It features a "Doughboy" on the front shaking hands with a sailor.

 

I believe "Zanol" was a brand sold door-to-door. It's a neat patriotic themed item which could be considered private purchase. The tin is about the same as the issue WWI tins.

Here is another type. It is Manhattan - Peerless that has had a Nathan label added since it is part of a Nathan Hygiene Kit from the WW1 period. I actually have two slightly different Nathan kits combined in one set of photos so I will add them all.

Well I guess we know there are at least two cans of the stuff alive. Here's mine. Pony.

 

Nice, and I see the front (and top) is slightly different two.

 

Thanks for posting!

Nice cans! Sorry I couldn't resist. Is there a thread that has the different WWI toiletries? Something that lists different items such as common private purchase items and issued items. It would be interesting to see the different items some of the members may have.

Thanks for sharing,

Mike M.

I am always looking for named items to Central Illinois WWI veterans.

This is a good start for shaving items: http://www.usmilitariaforum.com/forums/index.php?/topic/172769-razors-blades-brushes-cream-shaving-accessories/

 

And this is a fantastic care package complete with toothpaste (WWI toothpaste is not easy to find) : http://www.usmilitariaforum.com/forums/index.php?/topic/2907-wwi-care-package/

Thanks. The second link is giving me fits like the WWI section did. I'll check it out later on my computer and subscribe that way.

Thanks again,
