About the Photos

Most of the photos on this site were extracted from reference images (high-resolution tiffs, 20 to 200 megabytes in size) from the Library of Congress research archive. (To query the database click here.) Many were digitized by LOC contractors using a Sinar studio back. They are adjusted by your webmaster for contrast and color in Photoshop before being downsized and turned into the jpegs you see here.

Rexall is still a huge name in pharmacies in Canada, but of course most are far larger than this little place.

Rexall

Rexall still exists although in two far different forms than the store in the picture. In the USA the Rexall name was acquired by Sundown and the company became Rexall-Sundown, and is a manufacturer of nutritional supplements. In Canada the name is owned by the Katz Group which operated 1100 pharmacies across Canada including many operating as Rexall Pharmacies. The Katz Group bought the naming rights to the Edmonton Colliseum which is now known as Rexall Place.
