Two Views of Upjohn Pharmacy Main Street USA

Staying on Main Street for a little while the photographer shot two photographs of the Upjohn Pharmacy. I like the nuclear family in the images, especially the man filming with the 8mm movie cameara and then the lady who I think is the man's mom carrying the camera in the next image. Classic 1950s Americana, especially the shirt on the man. The front of the pharmacy was very ornate but then it turned into pretty blank brick.

I want that leaded glass lamp that is hanging outside the pharmacy! Wonder if it still exists somewhere?

Love the old Main Street shots. And I'll have to arm-wrestle the major for that lamp! I wonder if it's sitting in some crate in a Disney warehouse at this very moment?

Keep up the good work!
