‘A little dab’l do’

A little dab'l do ya’ was the advertising phrase used by Brylcreem in the 1950s, to put 'life, life, life back into dry hair'. These items are part of the Eddy Grant Collection which contains food and pharmacy items from the late 1800s to mid 1900s. Grant lived in Narrogin but donated his whole collection to the Coolgardie Council for the Museum.
