My parents, Edward & Harriet Hardin lived in Alameda, Ca. through the Great Depression. Until my older sister married in 1944, my parents lived in Grace Court at #1014. They moved when I was 9 months old in 1945, to Napa County,Ca. I can remember them talking about Saylors chocolate Candy company. They knew the Saylor family in Alameda. The candy recipe was pretty special. Wonderful flavors like See's candy is.
Perhaps the Grandfather Saylor started the company? My parents thought the chocolates that came from Saylors were the greatest thing made.
