Good Hope and Sprigg St. 1929

Posted Friday, March 30, 2012, at 12:00 AM

This photo was taken about 1929 and shows the southeast corner of Good Hope and Sprigg Street in Cape Girardeau.

Businesses include Kinder's Drug Store, R.E. Beckman Groceries and Fresh Meat, Miller & Fischer Grocery and Meat Market with Farmers & Merchants Bank across the street.

July 20, 1925 Southeast Missourian

Who is Your Skinny Friend, Mabel?

Tell him to take Cod Liver Oil for a couple of months and get enough good healthy flesh on his bones to look like a real man.

Tell him he won't have to swallow the nasty oil with the nauseating fishy taste, because the McCoy Laboratories, of New York, are now putting up Cod Liver Oil in sugar coated tablet form.

Ask for McCoy's Cod Liver Oil Compound Tablets -- Kinder's Drug Store, Holloway's Drug Store, Finney's Pharmacy and every druggist worthy the name sells them -- 60 tablets -- 60 cents. Any man or woman can put on five pounds of healthy flesh in 30 days or your druggist will willingly refund the purchase price.

One woman put on 15 pounds in six weeks. Children grow robust and strong.

"Get McCoy's, the original and genuine Cod Liver Oil Tablet."

I miss Farmers and Merchants bank. THAT'S the way a bank SHOULD look.

I agree with Ken. It's a real shame that the Farmers & Merchants Bank couldn't have been preserved.

Fred Lynch has captured images for the Southeast Missourian since 1975, in that time moving from black-and-white to color, from film to digital and to video. The blog title is a nod to an earlier era of news photography and the 4x5 Speed Graphic: It's more important to be there for the shot than to worry about technical details.
