The Fuller Brush Man

By Gerard @presurfer
The Fuller Brush Man
The Fuller Brush Company was founded January 1, 1906, by Alfred Carl Fuller, a businessman from Nova Scotia, Canada. The company began with door-to-door sales of brushes of various sorts. During the 1940s and 1950s, the ubiquitous Fuller Brush salesman became a cultural icon, inspiring comedy and jokes, movies, and at least one song.
These days, door-to-door selling is frowned upon. But in its heyday, door-to-door selling was a legitimate pursuit and many men (and a few women) made a good living at it. One of the more prolific door-to-door salesman was the Fuller Brush Man.
