Luin B. Switzer Drug Store on Harbor Road (at Main Street) in 1910

(click on image to enlarge)
Drug Store, Harbor Road circa 1910
Southport, Connecticut
Description "Quarto Chrome" postcard, #E5219, Published by L B Switzer, Southport, Conn. Made in Germany. See comments with photo #275. Printed on front of postcard "Harbor Road, Southport, Conn." The picture is thought to have been taken around 1910. On the left is the Luin B Switzer drugstore. Electric light had not yet been installed (done in 1913). There had been another store building to the west (right) of the drug store. It burned around 1903 and was taken down. These data have been used in establishing a tentative date. Beyond the drugstore is a park which belonged to the Perry family. Next, going west on Harbor Rd, is the BC&MMR (Bachelor's Comfort & Married Men's Relief) Club. The three white buildings beyond the club house are the Meeker onion warehouses which were at the foot of Westway Road.
