I don't know about Life Boy but I have seen old magazine ads and recall old
TV ads that show Ivory to date to the late 1800s. I also remember seeing it
placed in museum displays with washing equipment of that era. Let's hope
the curators had done their homework and had an accurate display.

However, no doubt many people did not adopt it for years and even decades
after it was introduced. Things used to take time to become widely adopted
and rural areas were usually even slower to receive new products and product
information.

There were still a noticeable number of people in rural areas that did not
have electricity and running water in the 1950s. Electricity had been
available for approximately 50 years by then.
