Photomontage advertisement for "Double X Floor Cleaner" with a can of the product on a wooden floor. A line of 14 repeated images of a woman mopping, and a circle of 19 images of a men mopping have cleaned areas of a wooden floor. "Double X Makes Old Floors New" is displayed in three-dimensional letters and "Makes Varnish Vanish" appears on a circular cleaned area of the floor.
Photomontage composition showing a bar graph made of strips of floor boards with the years from 1924 to 1931 along the bottom apparently showing the sales growth of "Double X Floor Cleaner" during that time. Superimposed are photographic images of small men wearing lederhosen and holding picks and ropes scaling the bar graph. A strong light casting a dark shadow against the wall behind, enlarges the figures and graph bars, increasing the drama of the scene and giving it a cinematic aspect.
