I went to visit, and learn about the TUMS factory.
There were lots of drivers keeping each other company, waiting for their delivery times.
“This historic building is one of the last manufacturing sites in downtown St. Louis. Its history goes back to 1905 when the A.H. Lewis Medical Company began manufacturing a product called Nature’s Remedy. The facility expanded its operations to include the manufacturing of TUMS antacid in 1930. Today, this site is proud to continue manufacturing TUMS.”
TUMS were created in 1928 by pharmacist James Howe for his wife. Once they took a sea voyage and several people on board ended up trying the medicine created for Mrs. Howe. It has been popular ever since.
So far, this is the only place TUMS is manufactured, although it sells all over the world.
It’s made of sugar, calcium and starch.
I rode MetroLink, got off at the “Stadium” station, enjoyed walking two blocks west on Clark Ave/St to Broadway, the morning was stellar, the views memorable . . I give it a high recommend. I hope you don’t need TUMS. If you do, “They’re Here For You!” 320 Broadway. St. Louis, MO
