Newbro Drug Co.

The Newbro Drug Company is on the corner of Arizona and Aluminum. The building looks like it used to be a warehouse, and it looks like it may still be used as one. The clouds were moving pretty fast, and a 30-second exposure captured that. You can also see a few stars between the clouds.

  1. Wow, that was pretty neat seeing the picture of Newbro Drug. Back in the mid-to late 70’s there used to be a roller rink on one of the upper floors. We used to take the service elevator up and ride the manufacturing slides back down. Thanks for the memory.

  2. First of all, let me say that you take fantastic pictures. I’ve enjoyed looking through each one. They bring back many memories of growing up in Butte. I wonder how many people remember that there was a roller rink on the upper floors of Newbro Drug back in the 70’s. As kids we would take the service elevator up and when no one was watching, we would ride the slides used in the manufacturing process back down. Chico

  3. Untill sometime in the 50's there was a very large lighted sign on the roof which could be seen from all over Butte. I think it blew down in a big windstorm.
