Dougherty's Airway Drug


Super-cool old neon on this old Dallas pharmacy Dougherty's, established in 1929, although the original location was in Oak Cliff, which is the section of Dallas just west of downtown. The famous outlaws Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow attempted to rob the original Dougherty's, but the old guy was packing some heat of his own and would not be robbed that day. More on Bonnie & Clyde & their Dallas doings in a later post.

I don't know if they still have one, but this drug store had a soda fountain from 1943 through the very recent past. They may still have one, but it's not mentioned on their website.

Yeah - it's such a romantic notion - the story of B&C.
