Ferback’s Rathskeller

Ferback’s Rathskeller was owned by John A. Ferback. The photograph for the postcard of Ferback’s Rathskeller was taken by Paul Gundlach, and George H. Tremper was the publisher.

Ferback’s Rathskeller was located at the corner of West Madison and Harrison Streets in Sandusky. In 1935, a local newspaper advertisement for Ferback’s featured plate lunches for fifteen cents. The ad below appeared in the March 9, 1935 issue of the Sandusky Register.

In the 1940’s, Clarence Nagel operated a furnace, air conditioning and sheet metal business at 536 Harrison Street. In the 1950’s and 1960’s Helen Nagel taught ceramics classes at Helen’s Hobby Shop at this address.
