Exploring photos: The Niagara Apothecary

Up to 1964 we had two pharmacies on Queen Street – Bates Rexall Pharmacy and Fields Drug Store, which is now the Niagara Apothecary. This 1940s painting of Fields also shows the concrete dumb policeman painted yellow with a flashing red light on top. It was badly scarred from many running into it. The building next to Fields, which is now the Exchange Brewery, was at the time of this painting the real Bell Telephone exchange. A few women from town worked there answering callers and making mechanical connections to the party they wished to talk to.
