My father was born in 1902 and worked his way through the U of Washington School of Pharmacy. He worked as a pharmacist, in World War Two he was at Fort Lewis as a Tech-Five (Pharmacist), and he met my mother. After a year and a half in England with the Army he and my mother got married, and he worked at pharmacies in Tacoma. He worked at The Economy Drug for nine years. The Economy Drug was at the address where the Browne's Star Bar and Grill was in the 1990s.
I went on a tour of Hilltop's old buildings in 1994 or 1995, I took snapshots, these are four that show the Bar and Grill.
