Mrs S. A. Roach, Confectionery of All Kinds

I Thought This A Hoot!

I had carried with me a small volume of selected essays and poems of Emerson to kill time while waiting on the Doctor recently. The book was published in 1926 and so I presume this tiny clipping found within from a Newark, Delaware newspaper may be nearly as old. What I found striking was the obviously unfortunate juxtaposition between name and service rendered.

Mrs Roach ConfectioneryOf course there is no need to fear, if that puts you off a bit,  you can always go to the shop in the ad above Mrs. Roach’s, where not only do they serve ice cream, but “temperance drinks” as well.  It’s a good life!

Blessings of your choosing, David
