William P. Taylor


Company Names, addresses, dates:1
  William P. Taylor, 616 King Street, Alexandria VA (1905-1911)
  Taylor's Pharmacy, 616 King Street, Alexandria VA (1912-1917)
  The Rexall Store, 616 King Street, Alexandria VA (1918-1936)

Notes:

The 1897-1904 city directories list "Charles G Lennon" at 616 King Street, so I assume that Taylor purchased or otherwise took over the drug store from Lennon.
The address 616 King Street was listed as "The Rexall Store" from 1918-1936. Rexall was a chain, so I don't know if Taylor sold the store to the chain, or if he just joined the chain and continued to run the store.
