The Smith Pharmacy, Alta Vista, Kansas - 1909

Dr. W.H.H. Smith, a doctor and registered druggist, purchased this Alta Vista drugstore from Dr. E.W. Eldridge in 1897 after practicing for several years in Eureka, Kansas. Smith established a thriving practice in Alta Vista until moving to Council Grove in 1910. This view, created as a real photo postcard, dates from 1908-1910.
