Bokas Pharmacy in Gulf Breeze …Update

Bokas Jordan 5_SFW_FHP_23 June 11

I do not remember this pharmacy as Bokas Pharmacy, I remembered it as Bokas-Jordan Pharmacy.  It was also located in a different part of Gulf Breeze than where this one was located.  Maybe someone like Billy Tarbuck who was raised in Gulf Breeze will see this post and can fill us in on some of the details.  This photo was made sometime in the 1950’s, I believe, but I am not sure of the date at all … for all I know it could have been in the early 1960’s.  Thanks for looking .. Frank

UPDATE:  Mrs. Rose Geeker Thames contacted me and said that this photo was taken in April of 1956.  The Bokas Pharmacy above was located in the Benson Building that was located on Hwy 98 at the red light in Gulf Breeze.  I believe the intersection is Hwy 98 and Shoreline Drive and it was the only red light in Gulf Breeze for at least 20 years, if I remember correctly.  I do not know how long the pharmacy was located at this location, since I was born in 1953 and I do not really remember much about Gulf Breeze until the middle to late 1960’s.  Mrs. Thames also mentioned that Vic Bokas was her brother, which I did not know either.  I appreciate all of the comments that readers make to help me put the correct information with the photos … Frank
