Classic Corner Drugstore

Received  a comment from Gail yesterday that the triangular building downtown reminded her of Shalit’s Drugstore in Morristown where we went to HS.  So when I saw this corner drugstore tonight on the way home from the All City HS Art Showcase, I stopped to photograph it. Looks like I’m in the middle of traffic. Camera propped against a light pole, cable remote.   Seems the CVS, Eckerds,  Walgreen’s eat up all the independents but this one’s still open in Bloomfield on the corner of Penn Ave and Main St.

A busy corner, a block from the new Children's Hospital.

Vintage Yo-Yo Clown Doll Spared from Trash

Vintage Yo-yo- clown hanging around.  Looking pretty sad. Full of dust.
Time to throw him out?  V, we talked about things with a face!  Fifty years of saving him,  gave him a bath. Spared from the trash.  Don’t remember really playing with him,  just propped up on a bookshelf, flopped really.  Colorful and jingles when you move him.  The bells probably dangerous for a child. I think there are still people who make these yo-yo dolls and will check it out. He was just always there.
