Doc Noble at New Vienna Drug Store 1956. Image Courtesy of Mike Whited.
The drug store during Doc Noble's tenure was a dimly lit space with a magazine rack near the front window and though Doc Noble generally sat behind a counter in the middle of the store, he kept an eagle eye on anyone looking at the magazines or comic books. He was known to call parents if young eyes wandered to the more racy magazines or acted at all suspiciously. There were many glass cases around the walls, small tables (at one time there was a soda fountain), and shelves going up to the ceiling along the walls. There was a postcard rack with New Vienna and other local scenes depicted.
In addition to the apartment above the drug store, Doc Noble also had a farm on Noble Road where he had Belgian Horses.
