Description: 

One of Jefferson's oldest businesses, Christian's Drugstore is owned by Willy Christian, the grandson of the original owner. Inside the store is a "prescription case where Uncle Willy kept the medicines" (162). He kept the "morphine in a little flimsy wooden drawer that anybody with a screwdriver or a knife blade or maybe just a hair pin could prize open, even though it did have a key to it that Uncle Willy kept hidden under a gallon jug marked Nux Vomica on a dark shelf that nobody but him was even supposed to bother because it was so dark back there" (163-64). Christian's is also a soda shop that serves ice cream (for free to the boys' baseball teams) and has tables for customers, a magazine rack and a perfume counter (198).
