Saturday Afternoon: 57th & First
The Drugs sign peeks over the top of a more recent awning, and the vertical Pharmacy sign (nothing fancy) is still up, but the Pollock-Bailey pharmacy is empty. At the store entrance, you can see a nice reminder of earlier days: a gilt-lettered sign with the old EL (Eldorado) /PL (Plaza) phone exchanges. Marilyn Monroe had an account here in the late 50s. Purchases included eye-liner, Ace bandages, and supplies of Amytal and Equanil.
