This pharmacy has been serving Decorah for almost 80 years.


Found a photo.

It shows this building back when it was Ben Bear Clothier.  Not just sure of the date, but it had to be around the time my Dad’s brother ran over him with the Model A.  Twice.  Lucky my Dad was always a forgiving type.  And that Model As were so lightweight.


The colorized photo is from a “Souvenir Mail Card” and the postage section states that it costs 1 cent to all Countries, if you write your name only.  If you include a message, the postage is 2 cents to US, Canada, Mexico.  5 cents to other countries where you might like to send a message.

Scroll down to see the two halves right side up, if you get a crick in your neck.
