A friend of ours brought in this photo to work recently and we just had to show to you guys. It is a photo of the Frenchtown New Jersey Rexall Drug Store from Christmas of 1952 or 1953. The photo was taken to publicize the winners of the Christmas prize drawing run by the store that year. The store was owned by Morris Pesakewitz
The Rexall was located at that time in the Odd Fellows Building in the space that is now occupied by Phillip Pfeiffer Antiques. In those days, Frenchtown was not afraid that a national chain store would destroy the town as a lot of officials and business owners are today.
