Days Gone By In Dublin, Texas

Below you will find a few thoughts on this old photo of Dublin, Texas. If you have memories of your  own, please share them in the comment boxes below.

According to Harrell Gilbreath, pictured is the Corner Drug in Dublin in the 1930s.

“I don’t know who had the corner drug during this period, but George Speers ran it when I was in high school and college. I see a couple of what appear to be 1934 Ford roadsters or close to that in the picture so would assume the picture to made around 1934 1938. Just a guess. This is now the Corner Lot.”

Valesca McMillian also weighed in on the photo.

“This looks like what was the Rexall Drug on Patrick when I was a teenager. Dr. Pate’s office was behind it on Blackjack Street. Between it and the bank were Higgingbotham’s, Novits, and Baxter’s.”

And then, there were Loyd Bailey’s thoughts.

“Harrell is right. The window in front of the car was literally worn slick from men sitting on the big slab of rock, and the telephone pole on the corner was almost whittled in two. They finally wrapped it with a steel band from the ground up to about eight feet. Back in the 30s, the Dublin band would play a few tunes every Saturday night. Those were the good old days in Dublin.”

About Fredda Jones

Rickey and Fredda have 2 children, 5 grandchildren, and a crazy life that includes sitting in the bleachers several times a week. The rest of her time is spent creating great content for and marketing small-town Texas.
