Old Fashioned Drugstore
Hello everyone! A very warm welcome to each and every one of you! The video I have chosen for this post is a one minute clip of an old fashioned drugstore...that is still in existence! Enjoy!
I think it will all depend on your age and where you live, but I am a baby boomer (born in October, 1956) and I fondly remember the old fashioned drugstores here in Montreal back in the 60's. When I was a little girl (and as I got older as well), most drugstores were equipped with an old fashioned soda fountain where you could order breakfast or lunch, a coffee, tea or milkshake and the food was quite good, as were the prices. These drugstores were very customer oriented and you always received good, old fashioned and friendly customer service in a warm and enjoyable atmosphere. I really miss them, as there aren't any in existence here anymore...at least not to my knowledge.
The photos I am sharing today are ones I took on a recent walk. Please keep in mind that the sun was very strong on the day I took these photos...and I find that the photos I take when the sun is so strong don't turn out as well as when there is some shade or when it is more cloudy. You just need to click on the images to see a larger view.
Thank you all so much for visiting me here! I always enjoy and appreciate reading your kind thoughts, which you are always welcome to share by clicking on the 'comments' link at the end of my post.
