The ad celebrates the sixth anniversary of the restaurant by the then-owners.
I like the ad because of its use of illustrations and hand-lettering. They combine to create a mood of elegance and sophistication.
It's too bad that era of dining is probably gone forever in Lorain.
Anyway, the Castle On The Lake as a restaurant dates back to at the very least the early 1940s. The ad below for "Ohio's Newest Dinner Dance Club" ran in the Chronicle-Telegram on Sept. 9, 1941.
