Valentine Goodies from Martin's in 1923
On Valentine's Day in 1923, Sandusky residents were encouraged to buy treats for their sweethearts at Martin's. The confectionery sold candies, heart shaped cakes, and a variety of chocolates, which were just right for the occasion! Fred A. Martin, the brother in law of my great grandmother Ada Steen Parker, was the proprietor of Martin's Confectionery for many years. The advertisement pictured above appeared in the Sandusky Star Journal on February 12, 1923.
