Photo Friday—Knight Brothers Drugstore

City Drug Store, 1909, Nashville, Berrien County, Georgia [1].

In 1909 the City Drug Store was advertising extensively in the Nashville Herald. The owner, Alexander S. Knight, was owner and pharmacist. He was later joined by his brother, John T. Knight, and the store became Knight Brothers Pharmacy.

The Knight Brothers offered the community big savings on items such as Strozer’s Eye Water, antiseptic tooth powder, J. B. Williams’ toilet arti­cles, San Felice five cent cigars, and floating bath soaps.

The store was located on the west side of the courthouse square on Davis Street be­tween Washington Avenue and West Avenue. In June of 1912 an item in the Nashville Herald announced that J. W. E. Powell had sold the City Drug Store to E. June Lovett and J. Frank Sikes, who in­formed the public that they would continue to run a first-class place.

The Knight brothers were sons of Henry H. Knight who introduced the bill to incorporate the City of Nashville in the Georgia Legislature.
