Drug Store and Antique Bottle Postcard Round Up




This postcard was on eBay with the title: EARLY DRUG STORE STOREFRONT OWL CIGARS TOM MOORE CIGARS RPPC KRUXO.

I couldn't resist doing a quick google search (as the seller had not), and I found that Dr. Everson was a druggist in Cawker City, Kansas, circa 1901.

The RPPC (real photo postcard) brought $18. Who knows if it might have gone for more if the seller had taken 5 minutes to do a little homework?

Info per these 3 google searches:

1) http://bit.ly/AaBKjp (dc everson drug store) which led to:

2) http://bit.ly/zRqzbu (dr dc everson cawker city kansas) which took me to:

3) http://bit.ly/xpWVdW -- According to "American druggist and pharmaceutical record, Volume 38, Jan. 1901", he may have had other locations -- "It is reported that DC Everson, druggist, of Cawker City, Kan., will shortly locate in Oklahoma."

[Here's my article on another unidentified postcard I researched for my 'Tique Talk blog -- Kahn's Sons Daily Market link.]
