Minnis, Madden & Co.

Description: Interior view of the Minnis,Madden & Co. Drug Store. Glass counters line all three visible sides of the store. Behind the counters are shelves which are filled with goods. Eight men are visible in the photograph, but only five are identified. From left: J. A. Madden (behind show case), unknown male, Dr. J. M. Inge, unknown male, unknown male, Fred Hutchinson, Mr. Shehay (first name unknown, listed as the "drug drummer"), J. A. Minnis. J. A. Minnis is behind the counter on the right. -Photograph was given to the Emily Fowler Library by Mrs. Fred (Bess) Minnis McFadden. The identifying information on this photograph says: Minnis and Curtis Drug Store, 1888; the information was written by Bess Minnis McFadden, daughter of J. A. Minnis, however, we think it is more likely that the photograph should be identified as Minnis, Madden & Co. and the time period should be around 1892-1894. This is based on the fact that the people listed on the back are Minnis & Madden and Curtis is not listed. Advertisements for Minnis, Madden & Co., are listed in the 1892 Denton County News and the 1894 business directory of Denton County. The History of Denton, Texas by C. A. Bridges, also lists the business and mentions it location as being on the south side of the square.
