cole_02 I don't know if this was the same building at 209 King Street that housed John T. Cole's drug store, but it's in the same location. The address numbers on King Street have changed, but according to a Sanborn map from 1885, this location (modern day 907 King Street) was numbered 209 King Street. Photo was taken June 2012.
