1967 Castle on the Lake Ad

Check out this April 7, 1967 newspaper ad for Lorain's iconic Castle on the Lake restaurant! I saw it recently while spooling through rolls of microfilm at the Lorain Public Library, in search of something else as usual.

The ad is interesting to me because of its 60's flair. Gone is the formal 1950's 'supper club' theme (that you saw on this blog back here.)

Instead, you have kind of a mod look, with a stylish, uniformed 'castle wench' dominating the ad.

It looks like it was a cool place back then... kind of like Lorain's version of the Playboy Club! I wonder what kind of act Eddie and Frankie did – anybody remember?

I do remember from the late 60s to the early 70s, that is was the "in" place for lunch.
