Drug stores on Broadway Street, Marysville, Kansas

These photographs show four views at different times of drug stores and other businesses on Broadway Street in Marysville, Kansas. The first photograph shows Broadway looking east around 1873, with a building marked "Drug Store" visible on the right side of the street. The second photograph shows a view looking west on Broadway (although the caption calls it Main Street) around 1911, with a sign for "E. D. Vincent, Druggist" visible on the side of a building. An unusual sight in this photograph is a man standing on the top of a utility pole, visible just below the right end of the druggist sign. The third photograph, also from 1911, shows Broadway looking east, with the sign for E. D. Vincent's Drug Store barely visible in the background of the right side of the street. The fourth photograph shows almost the same view of Broadway looking west around the 1920s. The sign on the building reads "A and B Drug Company, the Rexall Store." The first two photographs have horses and carriages visible, the third photograph has both carriages and automobiles visible, and the fourth photograph has numerous automobiles visible along the street.


Tully-McFarland Drug Company, Topeka, Kansas

These three photographs show exterior views of the Tully-McFarland Drug Company located on the northwest corner of 9th Street and Kansas Avenue in Topeka, Kansas. In the first photograph, signs on the front of the store read, "The Rexall Store," and advertise for cigars, candies, prescriptions, and Coca-Cola. Various items are partially visible in the store windows. A standing weighing scale is in the doorway outside the store. The second photograph shows a view looking down the sidewalk past the front of the store. Other business signs visible along the block include signs reading, "Doctors Lindsay," "Avalon Bar," and "Jewelers." A few people are visible walking along the sidewalk, and an automobile is visible parked at the curb. The third photograph shows a view looking past the corner of the drug store towards buildings across the street. Items in the drug store window are labeled, "Trutone, the Strength Maker." A sign advertising the musical comedy "My Home Town Girl" on Tuesday, February 8, indicates the year is 1916. A sign on a building in the background advertises Owl Cigars for 5 cents.


Dick Brothers Drug Store, Lawrence, Kansas

This photograph shows an exterior view of Dick Brothers Drug Store located at 847 Massachusetts Street in Lawrence, Kansas. The sign painted on the side of the building shows the traditional mortar and pestle pharmacy symbol. Other signs advertise paints and oils, Chancellor cigars, toilet articles, and soda. The building behind the drug store appears to be the YMCA. (The original negative of this photograph was damaged, causing the loss of the image on the bottom of the photograph.)
