The semester final in photojournalism requires students to create a photo essay that tells a story, documents a subject or makes an argument. Many of the best submissions tell the story of an interesting Austin location.

Sophomore Pearl Heinley completed one of the finest of these essays. In a series of 10 images and accompanying detailed captions, Pearl presents and preserves the story of Nau’s Pharmacy, which since 1951 has offered a full-service drug story, soda fountain and grill. The store is a historic landmark in the center of Clarksville (on the corner of 12th and West Lynn), and its holds a special place in the hearts of many generations of customers and also two generations within the Labay family that has owned the story since 1971. Pearl sat down with Laura Labay, the daughter of 86-year-old owner Lambert Labay to discuss Nau’s nostalgia-laden past, present and future.

All of us at MacJournalism are proud to share Pearl’s essay with you as the lastest installment in our #TuesdayTop10 photo essay series.
