Hiya aferrismoon,

It had a few names before Black and White was settled upon by James Buchanan in 1904.

Some of the advertising carries a chessboard edging round the dogs, which are greyhounds at that time.

Slogans included "honest friends" and "my never failing friends" - usually an upper middle class gent pictured with the terriers.

Was a big seller in Oz, James made a fortune in the 1930's - the construction of the Sydney Harbour Bridge dramatically increased the value of his site.
