I remember fondly the old Schwake Drug located inside the old Grand Hotel on the west side of the building..behind that was the office of Dr Weeks..I had my tonsils removed in his office as did my aunt, June Cordell Liesemeyer the day in the early '40's..after i awoke from the surgery.Dr Weeks and his nurse immediately started stuffing ice cream down my throat to get rid of the ether taste and keep the swelling down...jessup eventually bought out Mr Schwake and later moved down the street after the hotel and all the offices burned to the ground...lee later opened the Jessup Drug store at 9th and central..later seliing out to Bill Carroll..but the store remained Jessup drug.
