Once upon a time

B.C. - before coffee - This photo in Sandy Williams' book, "Images of America - Hinsdale," is taken from the corner of Hinsdale Avenue and Washington Street facing east. "Hinsdale Avenue is immediately recognizable in this c. 1926 photograph. On the site of Hinsdale's first store and post office, this corner drugstore was built in 1900 by Hinsdale builder Adolph Froscher. A drug store operated here for over 100 years until Starbucks sensitively rehabbed the building in 2005."
