Some Gillette Christmas stuff

Since Gillette was an Old Boston company… it had to love Christmas unabashedly.

Merry Christmas.

In 1910 The Gillette Razor Company ran its first group ads. I will publish others in subsequent blogs, but here it a Christmas one.

The Company made it first real money supplying shaving kits to the soldiers and in World War I. This picture ran in "The Blade" the company newsletter in December 1918, one month after the end of the war.

This is my favorite Christmas picture of Z-Building in South Boston.
