A circa 1900 view showing the interior of Partridge’s Drugstore, which was located on the southwest corner of Gillette and George streets.

This store was owned and operated by druggist Herbert L. Partridge (thought to be the man behind the counter in this photo) from 1897 to 1934. The 1900 La Crosse City Directory lists the store as “dealers in pure drugs, medicines, paints, oils, glass, wallpaper, toilet articles, perfumes, cigars, soda water, etc.”

Partridge died in 1955 at age 98, and the former site of his drugstore is now occupied by Margaret’s Hip Hop Fashions at 1134 Gillette St.
