1. Jackson Drugs Marker
Inscription. I have been at this corner most of my life being born in the midwife house across the street. Nothing has changed in the neighborhood, except the people. I’ve seen Tokunaga go, Hashimoto’s Drug store across the street become a golf shop, Tom and Mary’s closed, that was the coffee shop across the street. I’m the only one left.
