Show & Tell – G.O. Guy Drugs

Looking through some old family negative stash I realized the paper sleeves that the camera shops put the negatives in are actually pretty cool. This was one my great grandfather Oscar has developed in Seattle Washington. I’m unsure of the year unfortunately. But the great thing about this place was you could get your drugs, develop your film and get your fountain pen repaired!

G.O. Guy was a small chain of drugstores located in the Seattle area of the U.S. state of Washington. The chain was founded in 1888 by George Omar Guy. Throughout the early 20th century, G.O. Guy’s was the second largest drug store chain in Seattle behind Bartell Drugs and predated it by two years. In 1987 Pay ‘n Save purchased all six locations and converted most of them to Pay ‘n Save express stores, slightly smaller than full service stores. Pay ‘n Save was bought by Thrifty PayLess which in turn was bought by Rite Aid.” – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/G._O._Guy
