Ashby's Drug Store

Company Names, addresses, dates:
  Ashby's Drug Store, Remington VA
  Remington Drug Co, Remington VA

According to this web site, this drugstore opened in 1908 as W.W. Smith's Dry Goods & Notions, and became Will H. Ashby's in 1913. The bottle below says "T.J. Ashby", so it must have stayed in the Ashby family for a while. The neat thing is that this drug store is still open today, and is worth checking out if you're ever in Remington.
