Local Advertisements in the December 1939 Fram

Along with several original works of prose, verse, art, and photography by students at Sandusky High School, several advertisements from Sandusky area businesses appeared in the December 1939 Fram. Students embellished the advertisements with block prints, as seen below in the ads from Farrell-Cheek Steel and the Ohio Public Service Company.

Page 33 of the Fram featured advertisements from the Simplex Radio Company and the William S. Frankel Company, a “women’s gift store.”

On another page, a figure is shown dancing with a milk bottle in the ad from Esmond Dairy, while the Denzer’s ad was accented with a stick figure holding an oversize pen.
