  • I read this as 'with soap and hoe'.

    Geez, they don't make soap like that any more.

  • From verso of card: "In the event of an air raid, many thousands of 2-lb. incendiary bombs might be dropped; these do not explode, their object being to start fires wherever they might fall. The long-handled scoop illustrated is necessary. . . . It is made in two sections, the scoop on one end and the hoe on the other, and when joined together is 7 ft. long. In the picture it is separated, the hoe being used to draw the bomb into the scoop, which is made strong enough to withstand the heat of a burning bomb."
