Golden Peacock Bleach Creme

Description
In 1913, the Mitchum Warren family established the Paris Toilet Company in Paris, Tenn., to market a bleaching cream for freckles. The company name was changed in 1927 to the Golden Peacock Company and later became the Mitchum Company. It was said that one of the founding family’s sons, Mitchum Warren, grew tired of being asked if his family made toilets.
