Photograph of a storefront for a drug store, on an unpaved street. The one and a half-story building is brick, with a curved roofline topped by an ornamental mortar and pestle in the center and a triangular ornament on each end of the building. On the facade is painted C. Erhard & Son in fading paint, with an advertisement for smoking tobacco. A flat roof covers the walkway, supported by narrow posts, and striped awnings are rolled up to the overhang. Three windows and two doors are arranged symmetrically on the front of the building. Two men stand in front of the center window, with another man beside the left doorway and another in the right doorway. A bicycle rests against the storefront. Small portions of the adjacent buildings are seen.
