    Altus, Oklahoma Drug Store and Druggist Bottles

    Hi all, a few bottles I'd like to share from Altus, OK. Dug these out of the old dump there a long time ago.

    BURKETT & SON
    ALTUS DRUG STORE
    OKLAHOMA

    OWL DRUG CO.
    NORTH SIDE SQUARE
    ALTUS, OKLAHOMA.

    GEO. D. PENDLETON
    DRUGGIST
    ALTUS, OKLA.

    MCELROY DRUG CO.
    PRESCRIPTION SPECIALISTS
    ALTUS, OKLA.

    I like the one with "NORTH SIDE SQUARE". I remember going around that old square many a time! Thanks for looking!

    Thank you. We were diggin' all kinds of stuff but it was so long ago (early 70s). I can remember these because they're embossed.

    Good bottles! I collect Oklahoma bottles and I like that owl and Burkett & Son. I've seen all of these before with the Pendleton being the most common of these (used to have one myself) but compared to other towns in Oklahoma still rare. What other bottles do you have? I will post some of mine for you to see.

    Afraid I don't know, this was back in the early 70s. It was just west of town on both the north and south sides of highway 62.
