Let Flowers Be Her Valentine

This beautiful advertisement by Gustav William “Gus” Putzek, owner of Knost Floral Company at 1229 17th Street, Portsmouth, Ohio, got right to the point:

“Thrill her with red roses. Capture her heart with gay violets. Delight her with a bright bouquet of carnations. We have a grand selection -have us gather and arrange your Valentine flowers!”

All with a promise to have “flowers delivered anywhere by wire.”
