MY OLD HANG-OUT

Rexall Drug Store

Back in the early 60’s while I was in Fleetwood High School, there was Rauchs Drug Store that was on the Main Street of Fleetwood just a short walk away from our school. It was a popular place to go for us teenagers back then.

The ole’ Drug Store was a place we could hang out at after school left out. It had a soda fountain with ice cream, cherry cokes, and a Wurlitzer Juke Box that we could always play 60’s music on. Back then the price of a cherry coke was 10 cents, a small ice cream sundae was 15 cents, and you could play 6 songs on the Juke Box for .25 cents. A nickel would play 1 song, a dime would play 2 songs back then.

The booth you see in the picture is exactly what they looked like, minus the other clutter around it. The Store had 4 or 5 of these booths for us to sit in. I remember this very well and all the times I was sitting in a booth like this. The Wurlitzer Juke Box is gone, and probably in someones collection. They are worth lot’s of money today. What used to be the Drug Store is now a furniture store. I used to have a picture of what it looks like now, but I lost it somehow. To bad this memory filled place has faded into History.

Thanks for stopping by.

I am 75 yrs. young and now retired. I worked in the Machinist Trade for 24 yrs. Served in the US Navy with a Tour of Duty in Vietnam. Being retired I do enjoy Photography with my Nikon and Pentax Camera's, snooping around in Historic and Abandoned places, using my Scroll Saw, Reading, Travel, riding a bicycle on the many Trails that are around my area, and what-ever else will interest me at the time. Come with me and see where I go, where I have been, and my Life surviving Retirement.
