"World's Most Unusual Drugstore"

"The famous talking Mermaids, one of the most different and outstanding of the many attractions at the World's Most Unusual Drug Store--Daily bring fun and merriment to thousands of visitors to Webb's City in St. Petersburg, Florida - DON'T MISS THIS UNUSUAL FEATURE"

...unusual indeed! The mermaid thing might not have caught on, but James Earl "Doc" Webb's idea of an Express Line for "10 items or less" did!

  1. Amazing! I've seen other Webb's postcards, but not this one. The place must have been somewhat like South Dakota's Wall Drug, a huge store that has elements of a souvenir shop, carnival, a museum, and an amusement park, with just a bit of drugstore thrown in.
