John Steinbeck sits atop this new statue on Cannery Row, chatting with Ed "Doc" Ricketts, his longtime pal. Four other men, all of whom rescued the historic waterfront attraction when the canneries closed sit alongside them.
It is just down the street from the Sardine Factory, one of our many dispensing "Pharmacies."
Thanks for this post! That is a beautiful statue!
You have given me a wonderful idea, as we approach, St. Patrick's Day!
While the most interesting and informative, bejacob hits all of the counties in America, just maybe:
We would start in WDC, at that famous "Irish Pharmacy" next to the train station!
Great idea, but we might forget what our mission exactly is after the fourth or "FIFTH" pharmacy visited!!!!
I like it!
One of the pleasures of trying to visit almost everywhere in the country is finding such places along the way, whether they are Irish or not. I remember Keegan's Irish pu... uh, 'pharmacy' in Richmond, VA, at least I think I do.
Two great stops (where I remembered to take photographs before I went in) were large "pharmaceutical" manufacturers, one in Tennessee, the other in Kentucky (my friends Jack and Jim).
Naturally, I couldn't leave without bringing home some "medicine" per doctor's orders.
