Superior TV

8632736421_580817f4c3_zThe vacant building at 4638 South Yakima had most recently been Superior TV with a living unit upstairs, but its been vacant for a while. A 1977 photo of the property shows it occupied by Superior TV, so they had a pretty long time in the space, most likely repairing the tube TVs that use to be popular.

The building was originally built as Goodwin Drug Store in 1923 and Wm. Seese was the builder.

Love for Sale at Rite Aid in James’ Center


I was sent to Rite Aid at1850 South Mildred Street (James Center),Tacoma, WA 98465 for index cards today. While there I admired there selection of Valentine’s Cards. I then played with the image using http://pixenate.com/ for the heart shape and http://www.befunky.com/ for the tones.

Rite Aid on Pearl

It was extra hot today and I needed a cool drink. Rite Aid at 1912 Pearl Street was a good choice since I also needed band-aids. The Rite Aid was just like every other Rite Aid, but the cashier was particularly upbeat and delightful. That makes such a difference!

Lincoln Pharmacy

The Lincoln Pharmacy building was constructed in 1939 and from what I can glean the building was originally a grocery store, Totem and then Safeway. In 1953 Failor’s Pharmacy opened in the building and now, of course, it is Lincoln Pharmacy, an independent pharmacy with specialty compounding.
