Picture of Health: Images of Medicine and Pharmacy from the William H. Helfand Collection
Monsieur Le Duc was the owner of the Grande Pharmacie des Halles Centrales in Le Havre. His pharmacy fills the entire space of the poster; both an animated scene on the sidewalk and the delivery truck at the right attest to an active business. Until its destruction by Allied bombardment during the liberation of France in 1944, the façade remained as it is shown here; as recently as 1974 there was still a pharmacy, more modern in structure, on the site. William H. Helfand, from The Picture of Health: Images of Medicine and Pharmacy from the William H. Helfand Collection (1991), p. 37.
