Chemists, Sidmouth

This simple but elegant mosaic has been preserved even though the store is no longer a pharmacy. Several volumes of the Yearbook of Pharmacy published during the last three decades of the 19th century mention Mr R. Chessal, chemist, of Fore Street but in the absence of a house number, it isn't possible to be absolutely sure whether this mosaic greeted his customers. Yet since Fore Street isn't too long, that may well be possible.

Location: Fore Street, Sidmouth, Devon / Picture taken in April 2012
