Sheffield Lake Community Days 1972
Graphic design-wise, the ad is a bit of a snoozer – but the creepy clown illustration and bizarre FUN! FUN, FUN! HO HO caption makes it a little amusing. Plus, the ad includes a listing of most of Sheffield Lake's businesses at that time so it has a little historical value.
Forty years later, several of those Sheffield Lake businesses are happily still around: Amber Oaks, Brownie's Market, and Risko's. Lake Shore Inn is now Dock's Tavern, and Ohio Canoe Adventures Inc. in Sheffield Village is now known as The Backpackers Shop.
Others listed above are gone, such as the Brunswick Shoreway Lanes, as well as Ilg T.V. (until earlier this year the home of an internet cafe).
Anyway, see you at Sheffield Lake Community Days!
