Bondurant's Pharmacy

This drive-thru pharmacy, shaped like an enormous mortar and pestle, can be found at 1465 Village Drive in Lexington, KY.

(Do people even know what mortars and pestles are anymore? I doubt it.)

The people here are very proud of their unusual structure and are happy to tell visitors all about it. Believe it or not, this building dates back only to the 1970s, not the 30s-60s heyday of creative mimetic architecture.

You can see an aerial view on Google Maps here.
