Sheppard Street Pharmacy, 604 N. Sheppard St., Paper Fan, 1930s

This fan is a great item donated by Richard to me in the last week. I need to check the Richmond directories to see how long the Sheppard Street Pharmacy lasted. The 1939 directory does not have them listed. The one item I have that does have a date - the monthly statement for "Pam Moss" - is dated Nov. 1, 1938 for her October purchases.

This woman (if that is "Pam") had about 5-6 prescriptions filled during the month of October in 1938 - not counting refills. Kleenex, adhesive tape, thyroid tablets, soap.... Can anyone make out the writing and give me the total list here? Thanks.

Came across this at a postcard show a few years ago - gave it to a friend who just gave it back along with some other items from the Sheppard Street Pharmacy which was located on the 600 block of N. Sheppard Street - near where Cafe Diem is today.
