As a Bronx kid growing up during the 1940s and early 50s, I have fond memories of the convenience of going to my nearest drug store on the northwest corner of Allerton and Cruger Avenues, just a half block walk from my home. Our pharmacist was Mr. Silberfarb and during all those years, we never had any complaints about his service. Our prescriptions were always ready on time and he was very devoted to his job.

Was your drug store also on a corner within reasonable walking distance from your home? I don`t recall any drug store located in the middle of a block during my childhood years, only on a corner! Do you remember your pharmacist`s name? Where was your drug store located? Was it on a corner or in the middle of a block? Any memories to share?
