Hassell Drug Store

Contributed by Toni Naccache

The man behind the counter on the right side is my grandfather, Sam Gillard.  My grand-
mother said he was 15 when the photo was taken, therefore it was about 1915. I don't
know the location of the store except that it was downtown Fort Worth. You can see the
sign, "Hassell Drug Co." on the back wall. I don't know how long this drug store existed
and I don't remember it. My earliest memory of Fort Worth was of going to "Leonard
Bros."

My grandfather was born in Lott, Texas. As a boy and until he married, he lived in Tarrant,
Texas, near present day Hurst. He rode the train into downtown.
