Remembering From The 1950s: A Special Person, At A Special Place
This article first appeared in issue 20, and was written by Staff. The full title appeared as: Remembering from the 1950s: A special person, at a special place, on the Columbia Square.
Visit to Brandenburg Rite-Aid kindles memories of Columbia's Corner Drug Store and the beautiful smile of Dorothy Collins
Sundaes bring to mind Collins Drug Store!
Recently I had a deja vu experience. After one of those "brain-drain" inservice days educators are subjected to in preparation for the rigors of a new school year, I walked into my brand new Rite-Aid drug store and handed over my prescription to the clerk behind the counter.
Then I wearily plopped into one of the chairs they provide for people who need to sit down before learning the price of the newest wonder drug.
My mind was quite blank, to tell the truth, when I glanced across the room and saw a fair-haired lady with a sweet smile busily filling a prescription. I was momentarily transported back to those teenage years when my first stop after school was the Corner Drug and the first image to meet my eyes when I entered the door was Mrs. Dorothy Collins.
Actually my pharmacist is Kay Collins Embrey, who resides here. Of course she is much too young to remember me as an after-school fixture at the Corner Drug, but we enjoyed chatting about my memories of her parents and that great landmark in my life-the Corner Drug!
