City Drug Store BottleThe City Drug Store was started by Dennis Shea. James Courtney took over when he bought the building from Dennis Shea. Joseph H. Lockwood, who owned several drug stores, bought the store from the Courtney estate and, a year later, sold it to Eugene Curran and William Flynn in 1919. At that time, it became the Curran and Flynn Drug Store. Interestingly enough, in 1892 a fellow by the name of Timothy Shea went to a doctor for a prescription for liquor but was refused. Later, he saw the doctor at City Drug and threw a bottle at him. The bottle missed the doctor but broke several of the City Drug bottles. (Photo courtesy of Stan)
