Mr. and Mrs. Bregant Mascots for "Woodward's Candy"

Smaller than a postcard, this advertising card depicts the midget couple advertising "Woodward's Pure Sugar Stick Candy" and "Real Butter Scotch" from John G. Woodward & Co. 'The Candy Men' Council Bluffs, Iowa. The couple can be seen on other similar cards, this being the earliest located, as mascots for the candy company. Midgets acting as mascots advertising products was a very popular attention-getting device used with success in the mid-19th and early-20th Centuries.
