Here's a Wellsville building that has stood the test of time. Our earliest recollection of this building goes back to the mid-1950s when it was a drug store. Believe it was Bloor's Drug, owned by folks from East Liverpool. Back then it looked pretty much the same as it does today in the top photo.
The second photo shows a man & young girl standing in front that were identified on the back as William Hurst & Addie Hurst Mosur. It appears that it was taken before the street was paved. We believe the third photo was taken later on in time. The street appears much smoother - maybe brick by then. We're not sure but MacGillinray Notions next door might be the same building that stands there today. The ladies in that photo were not identified. Neither of the older pictures have a date on them.
The older photos are from the archives at the River Museum. The exterior has had some changes but it's appears to be the same building.
