In 1917 Mr. Baldwin went into the drug business at the corner of Main and High streets, Lima, with his uncle, A. T. Baldwin, and they remained together until November 21, 1919, when H. D. Baldwin bought out the elder man, and is now the sole proprietor of his flourishing business. [Source]
Cobalt blue unembossed medicine bottle with a paper label from Everybody's Drug Store / Main and Vine Streets, Lima Ohio.
There were many drugstores / phamacy's called Everybody's, and I did not find any info as to whether that was an organized pharmacist group, or franchise/chain.
Lima's Everybody's Drug Store was started in 1917 by A.T. Baldwin, then sold to his nephew H.D. Baldwin (Harry Donald Baldwin) in 1919.
By 1923, C.H. Matthews was the proprietor.
They were still advertising in the Lima News nespaper in 1929.
- Lima's Baldwin family is not part of the famous Baldwin-Lima-Hamilton (BLH) locomotive company.
- There was a merger in 1951 of Lima's Lima Locomotive Works with Philadelphia's Baldwin Locomotive Works
