    Eaton’s Drug Store was on the corner of State and Pleasant. Small soda fountain (Believe it or not..). Haydn’s Rexal on the corner of Pleasant and Inn Sts. Also had a soda fountain. Saunders was the only South End drug Store.

    I remember Saunders ( right across the street from my house ) There was some odd health food restaurant that moved in shortly after ( The Rising Sun ) Didn’t last long ( the food was dreadful ) What more could I ask for with a drug store on one corner and a package store ( Rochettes ) on the other ! Life was good …

    I believe Northend Pharmacy was bought out by CVS when they opened up across from the MALL and Andy went to work for them over there

    I’m glad you remember North End Pharmacy! My uncle Nick was a great guy, and my family and I used to visit him, Anne, and Andy often. These days, when I’m in town, I usually spend some time in the park down by the river, behind where the drugstore used to be. It’s a great spot!

    Dan Lynch’s drug store was across from Eatons on Essex & State st. It was destroyed in one of NBPT’s most memorable fires along with Hymes shoe store. A huge fire in the winter of 55 (I think). Dan then moved up to High St by the train overpass.
    The fire started about 7:00 AM and raged all morning. The temps were single to teens and the fire trucks were frozen in place. Firewall were what saved the rest of State st.
    I watched it while sitting in Eatons across the street.

    Bottle found in my basement from Edward W. Eaton, Pharmacist on 58 State Street. If anyone has an interest in collecting these sorts of things, let me know…. free.

    Hi John – this Edward F. Eaton bottle had to be around 1930 or so.
