Lost Irvington--Wilson's Drug Store

In 1946, two buddies, Leland Dickerson (818 North Arlington Avenue) and Curly "the Mouse" Morris (831 North Campbell Avenue), arrived home after completing their tour of duty in the U.S. Navy during World War Two, when Lee Dickerson snapped this photo of his friend Curly Morris.  It appears that Mr. Morris might have been purchasing a pack of cigarettes.  Behind him, you can see the former Wilson's Drug Store at 6128 East Washington Street.  This building is long gone and is the site of a parking lot in 2014.

Robert (Curly the Mouse) Morris leaves the Wilson Drug Store at 6128 East Washington Street in 1946
