It seems to have become an accepted truth around here that Wrisley shaving soap is nothing but re-branded Yardley. The assertion has been made enough times that everyone seems to believe it without question. But where is the proof? Can someone provide a link to any documentation that bears out the truth or fallacy of this assertion? All I can find through searching online is that the Wrisley company was a soap and toiletry firm based in Chicago. Maybe they did market re-branded Yardley but I haven't been able to find any evidence that supports it. Let's try to get to the bottom of this.
