Sentimental Sunday: "Send Your Voice"

Long before cell phones, computers, and Skype, the March 14, 1911 issue of the Sandusky Register featured this advertisement for the Bell Telephone. Housewives of Sandusky were encouraged to telephone their butcher, grocer, druggist, as well as their neighbors, friends, and relatives. Several of my great grandmothers were homemakers in the Sandusky area at the time this newspaper ad appeared in the local newspaper.
