"Pineapple Snow please."

Mykrantz Drugstores were a fixture of the neighborhood back in the early 20th Century.

Drugstores of the day offered newspapers and magazines, cosmetics, and fast food as well as Coca-Cola with actual coca; Piso's, the cough syrup with cannabis; Pluto Water, the laxative with lithium; a dozen or so opium-laced alcohol patent medicines, and 1,000,001 laxatives ranging from pointless to turn-you-inside-out.

It's Halloween time! Jack-o'lanterns on porch at Summit and Chittenden.
