Outstanding find and so well captured, Ken! When I was in high school, there was one place in town like this, an old-fashioned Drug Store still in business at the time. I did not appreciate it then, preferred the hot dog stand! (???) These old fixtures are fantastic! Now, I notice them in furniture stores. Hefty prices, too!
