The top image, from a reproduction postcard in my collection, shows Bennett’s Drug Store’s soda fountain and
lunch counter before a major fire on Saturday night February 21, 1948. The fire started next door at F. W.
Woolworth’s Dime Store and quickly spread to Bennett’s. Both businesses suffered massive damage, but were
rebuilt, modernized and open again soon after the fire.
The bottom image, from the files of Marion Mann, shows Bennett’s Drug Store’s rebuilt and modernized soda
fountain and lunch counter as it appeared in the 1950s.
