Shopping Saturday: Dowell's Pharmacy

Dowell's Pharmacy was established circa 1909 by William Fred Dowell on Centre Street in the heart of the Manassas business district.

Eastman Kodak's simple box "Brownie" camera was introduced in 1900.  Simple to use and inexpensive, the Brownie line was popular into the late 1950's.  I remember playing photographer with my Mother's well worn Brownie, although I don't remember there being any film/photos as part of the adventure.  The camera may have been inexpensive and easy to use but buying/developing the film could be costly.
