Gilchrist Drugstore Watercolor

We are taking a break this week from a mini-retrospective of Miriam’s early work and looking at some of her work centering on Birmingham and surrounding areas.

The piece below depicts Gilchrist Drugstore, a landmark in Mountain Brook Village just a mile from where Miriam grew up. The drugstore with a soda fountain and now restaurant has been in business since 1928 and continues to serve the surrounding community. Miriam has many fond memories with family and friends drinking shakes at Gilchrist’s soda fountain and eating their famous sandwiches.

This work is available for purchase. More details can be found here. Please contact us if you are interested in the work.
