These photographs show exterior views of the De Soto Drug Store in De Soto, Kansas. The left side of the building is occupied by the De Soto State Bank. The white rectangle near the top of the façade has a date for the building which possibly reads 1908. One picture shows the bank, drug store, and an unidentified house. The other picture shows a man standing in front of the drug store. A reflection in the store window shows a utility pole with wires connected to it. To the right of the drug store, just right of the small steps on the sidewalk, a small brief case or doctor's bag is visible on the sidewalk. At the far right of the picture is an object marked "Gasolene, Day-Night." It may be an early gasoline pump.

Date: Between 1900 and 1939
