The Development of Victorian Chemists Shops
By Dr Mike Pitt
Volunteer Chemist, Beck Isle Museum Pickering.

“Why were there no chemist’s shops as we know them before 1820 but many hundreds only 5 years later?
Why do you seldom find a chemist in a Chemists Shop?
How did our ancestors choose the best medicine when they did not know the cause of a disease?”
