I just thought that you would appreciate knowing that the little girl who sits on top of the Fairy Soap bar is actually my Great Grandmother. She grew up in NYC and moved her family to West Haven, CT in the early 1920′s. Her older brother brought her to an artists house every Saturday for 2 months, to paint the portrait which you see today. With the money she received from the advert, she was able to feed her entire family for over 3 months. I’ve heard people compare her to Shirley Temple – because of her cute curls.
