More Vintage Schwab's Pharmacy Photos

Schwab's Pharmacy was opened in the 1930's on Sunset Blvd. at Crescent Heights Ave. Shortly thereafter, the pharmacy became a popular place for many celebrities to purchase their daily theatrical newspapers, Variety and the Hollywood Reporter. Schwab's Pharmacy sold newspapers, magazines, various sundries and, of course, prescribitions.  In addition, the "eating counter", was popular with neighborhood residents, as well as, hundreds of movie stars.  After more than fifity years of being the most popular "drug store", it went out of business in the early 1980's.
