Lucky Tiger Tonic



The advertisement above is from a Roanoke newspaper, around the 1930s, for Lucky Tiger, a hair tonic that was supposed to cure dandruff.  The company began in the basement of amateur scientist and barber Benjamin Clarke, in the 1920s.  By 1935, it was trademarked and considered a barbershop staple.  And despite hard times throughout the decades, Lucky Tiger is still around today!  Below is a later ad for Lucky Tiger, most likely from the 1950s.
