Tarleton Thursdays: Did You Know?

Thurber Drug Store
Postcard Postmarked July 1909!
One hundred years ago this is what a Thurber post card looked like! This postcard is of the Thurber Drug Store. It was written in Thurber July 1, 1909 by J.E. M. to Mr. F. M. Marrs, Stephenville, Tex. He writes "All are well as usual. The photo is the Drug Store. See me at the corner. Yours, J.E.M." This photo is included in the online Dick Smith Library Cross Timbers Historic Images "Thurber Collection", as well as many other Thurber photos. From the library home page click on Cross Timbers Historic Images Project. Then use Thurber Collection as the search terms to find them all. Also be sure to visit the W.K. Gordon Center for Industrial History of Texas museum for a look into Thurber's history!
