Mystery pharmacy signage from the DelMarVa peninsula
There's a pretty strip of land along the mid-Atlantic coast called the DelMarVa peninsula because three states, Delaware, Maryland and Virginia, each own a chunk of it. When you get to the southern-most tip of it, you're at the outstanding engineering marvel that is the Chesapeake Bay Bridge, which is actually a bridge and a tunnel. On a pleasant drive in that area back in 2005, we stopped at a drug store that had an amusing logo. It's a guy's face, a friendly bespeckled guy, the kind of guy you'd want filling your prescription of Zocor or recommending a good over-the-counter foot powder. I didn't label the photo so I'm not sure if the pharmacy was in Del, Mar or Va, or what the name of the place is, but I believe it was a small chain. Anybody out there know? By the way, if you like kooky roadside signage, Debra Jane Seltzer has a mind-boggling collection of well-annotated photos at her flickr site. I'm a huge fan and you could and should easily spend hours there: http://www.flickr.com/photos/agilitynut/sets/ She's also in the middle of one of her road trips and you can follow along on her fun blog: http://roadsidenut.wordpress.com/ Go Debra go!
