Dayton’s Old School Museum currently has on exhibit photographs and lithographs of businesses that no longer exist in the community.
The attached photo from the 1920s is of the Dayton Drug Store. It had a soda fountain with porcelain stools and a counter and tables with marble tops. It also sold cigars and pipes with tobacco.
The Dayton Drug Store later became Mansfield’s Drug and later still was acquired by Clarence Quick who opened Quick’s Pharmacy in the 1960s.
The public is invited to visit the Old School on Saturdays, 10 a.m. – 4 p.m., located at 111 W. Houston Street, behind Walgreen’s. Admission is free.
