Peoples's Drug Store
Company Names, addresses, dates:
Peoples's Drug Store, 145 E. King Street, Strasburg VA (1916-2016)1
Peoples Drug Stores was a chain of drug stores throughout Virginia. But Wikipedia says they were bought out in 1975, and somehow this Peoples Drug Store lasted until 2016.
One of the bottles below says both "People Drug Store" and also "The Rexall Store". It's the only Virginia drugstore bottle I've seen that has markings for 2 different chains of drugstores.
These are clear bottles. The left one is 4.5" (2 oz) and the right one is 2.8" (1/2 ounce). They are both embossed:
vertical slugplate: PEOPLES DRUG STORE / OUR MOTTO IS PURITY / STRASBURG, VA
This is a clear 3.9" tall (1 oz) bottle with white pyroglazing that says:
vertical white pyroglaze: PEOPLES DRUG STORE / THE Rexall STORE / STRASBURG, VA
