The drugstore, shrine of youth and age. It was, I think, America's finest cultural achievement, more imporant than the poolroom. It offered "Drugs & Sundries". Sundries! Goodness, what did drugstores not sell? Besides prescriptions, nostrums, and fountain food and drinks, drugstores sold soaps and shampoos, razors, pomades, and, during the Depression, beer! Many of them had free or penny scales, jukeboxes, pinball machines, and literature: newspapers and racks of pulps and slick magazines, some of them naughty, from Film Fun (yum, yum) to Spicy Detective, Judge, College Humor, and, eventually, comic books.
