barnes_02 This postcard depicts the Barnes drugstore. I don't know the date of the postcard, because it is unused (i.e. no post office cancelation date on the back).
barnes_04 This photo came from Google in July 2016 (I don't know how long before that it was taken by Google). It depicts the building that was once Barnes drug store.
