  1. Steinway’s Drug Store was located in this building on the corner. They had a restaurant in back that served ice cream, etc. Mitchell’s was a bit further west on 71st St. (I don’t know if they ever moved to this corner.) As I recall, Walgreen’s was further west, too, at 71st & Jeffery, at least in the 50s & 60s.

  2. Reminds me of the building on 71st and Jeffrey that the Peter Pan Restaurant was in.

  3. I used to go to a dentist in that bldg. Yuk

  4. My family went to see Dr Munson, the family dentist, in this building when I was a child. There was a cage elevator that went up to the 4th floor, where his office was located. There were many doctors and dentists who had offices located around a central waiting room. As I recall. there were big wooden benches for the patients to wait on, and there was a receptionist for the 15 or so professionals that shared that space. However we usually went on a Saturday morning and the dentist always called in his own patients, as the receptionist was off that day. The dentist office was east-facing with a nice view of the golf club and his chair overlooked the big sunny window. He had a little ante-room in the front of the office where he had his desk, file cabinet, coat rack, and where you paid your bill. No necessity for dental insurance — it was a one-man practice. And he kept Saturday morning hours, too…..I do remember there being a small drugstore on the first floor corner. There was an entrance into the building interior from the drugstore. I do not ever remember my parents getting us any treats, though. This dentist was a Northwestern U grad and practiced at that location until he retired, as far as I remember.
