Joseph P. Hall
Company Names, addresses, dates:
Joseph P. Hall, Suffolk VA
One of the postcards depicted below says on the back that the Joseph P. Hall drug store has been in continous operation at the same location since 1837. The front says "OVER 104 YEARS ON THE SQUARE", so I assume the postcard is circa 1941.
(more information will be added when I get around to researching this druggist)

|This postcard depicts a store with a sign that says "JOS. P. HALL DRUGS". Under that is another sign that says "Rexall DRUGS".|
|This postcard has 4 pictures related to the Joseph P. Hall drug store. The top right shows a manifest that has a date of 1837 according to the text on the back of the postcard. The other photos show the drugstore at 1900, 1920, and "today", which is circa 1941. I base 1941 on the fact that it says "OVER 104 YEARS ON THE SQUARE" on the front, and "at the same location since 1837" on the back.|
