Pangburn’s Ragtime Candy Halloween Ad or “Passion Pirates of the Pumpkin Islands”

Something I noticed about old timey representations of Halloween. They always had a heavy dose or romance in them. This Pangburn’s Candy Ad is lushly illustrated and could have the cover of a romance novel. I think it would be called “Passion Pirates of the Pumpkin Islands”.

  1. This is an awful lot to ask of a little box of chocolates!

    Still, as Ogden Nash (that well-known relationship expert) said: Candy is dandy/ But liquor is quicker.
