S. G. Wright drugstore
the gilt edge drugstore
S. G. Wright was a merchant in the 1890s. The Gilt Edge Drugstore was in the store where Pope's plumbing business is now located. The location of S. G. Wright's Drug Store and S. G. Wright's Store (apparently a dry goods store) are unknown.
Excerpt from Photo 202, an 1893 photo of the bank corner, prior to the construction of what is now the Legion Hall building:
Here is the full photo. The Gilt Edge is to the far right, with a single man standing in front of it. The small dark sign sticking out above the entry doors says "Gilt Edge."
