This fascinating cut, copy, and pasteup of ads from Chambersburg in 1913. Note the ad for Silk's Pharmacy, the same Silk's that was taken over by Harvey Silk who served the Bromley community for many years in his drug store on Greenwood and Norway Avenues. Harvey was the best, and he is very much missed. It was a sad day when the independent Pharmacy became the victim of the Walgreens, CVS's and RiteAids.
The Urken store at S. Broad and Dye must have predated S.S. Allen and sons. The old brick building is still present, but it's been a long time since I was in there. I was probably looking at Lionel trains just before Christmas, or getting my feet x-rayed to see if my Poll Parrot shoes would fit.
