THE AMAZING DR. JIM

Dr. Jim Davidson was a Dentist on Capitol St. for many years.  What made him amazing was all the wonderful advertisements that he ran in the course of his career.  Nobody else had the courage to do this, while some in his profession thought it shameful.  Doctors simply didn't run Ads like this, and it was frowned on by many medical organizations.  But not only did Dr. Jim have a thriving practice, he also had a side business with his brother, and he used his fame to push that business also. What was that sideline?  Chickens!   Yes, Dr. Jim had the largest poultry  plant around, located off Rt 60 between Charleston and St. Albans.    He also was somehow involved with the circus,  and you can see more of that later.  In the meantime, let's look at some of those wonderful Ads.....

Dr. Jim maintained an office at 221 1/2 Capitol Street in Charleston for many years. That building still stands today, and at the time, was owned by my best friends Aunt.
