You didn't give much information to work with, but I can supply some information.

A drug store in "Sheffield Township, somewhere around 32nd Street", would be in what is known as South Lorain. In 1920 this area was heavily populated by many recent European immigrants. It was a real ethnic, cultural mix. I checked the 1919/1920 and 1921/1922 Lorain city directories, and located several drug stores located in the general area of 32nd street --- but none listed with an address on 32nd street. The problem is that 32nd Street runs east - west, and several drug stores were listed on streets that run north - south, bisecting 32nd street, which may be classed a somewhere around 32nd Street. The list of drug stores that were listed on streets that bisected 32nd street are listed below.

1919/1920 Directory
E.H. Eddy & Co. Druggist --- 2816 Pearl Ave.
Jameson's Pharmacy --- 2836 Pearl Ave.
Krupp's Drug Store --- Corner 30th St. & Grove Ave.
Lorain Drug Co. --- 2816 Vine Ave.
Roth Bros. --- 2826 Vine Ave.

1921/1922 Directory
The druggists were the same as listed in the 1919/1920 Directory, with one exception. The E.H. Eddy drug store, was apparently taken over by Stephen L. Demeter. His drug store was listed as 2816 Pearl Ave, and E.H. Eddy had apparently left.

These are all the drug stores listed in the city directories as being in the South Lorain/Sheffield Township in the time frame you referenced. Hopefully, you can identify one of them as the drug store you are seeking.
