|The pictures shows a view of all (8) WWII Era Drug Store Front / Exterior Photographs With Advertising in this lot. Unfortunately because of the picture size below much can not be seen. These photographs were taken during World War II in front of an old drug store. The name of the store was Royal Pharmacy. I do not know for sure where it was located. My guess is that it was in Cambridge or Boston, Massachusetts but I could be completely wrong.|
Some are dated and they range from 1939 to 1942. The dated ones are stamped on the back with the date and
"PETER PAN PRINT REGISTERED MONOSSON PHOTO SERVICE".
These were taken with what appears to be family and friends in front of the Mom & Pop drugstore and the adjacent antique store. In the store front windows are a variety of nice advertising displays, signs, posters, packaging, and decals. Some are war related and some have an old movie theatre poster. In a few even old comic books can be seen hanging in the window. This place also had an ice cream / soda fountain service as well. Please see below for a listing of some of the advertising in this particular lot of photos. Some of them may only be partially visable as mentioned below.
