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.

That looks so cool and nostalgic.
It’s fortunate the good times remain with you, Les.
They have never left me, Jet. They never will.
