hogshead_12 This is postcard depicting Hogshead's Drug Store (on the left). It is postmarked 1931.
hogshead_13 I got this picture from Google Maps in September 2013. Near as I can tell, this is the same building (on the left) as depicted in the postcard above. It currently houses an architect company, and the address is 11 E Beverly Street (so presumably that was the address of Hogshead's drug store).
