Hi Gang,
Here's some more early pre-comics era newsstand photos of drug stores which sold a variety of magazines and pulps at the time.

The first batch are all of a single store - Peoples Drugs Store, 11th & G St., Washington, D.C.. 
Seems there were several of these around the country and they look quite sophisticated from these pictures.
