Visitors at the Chemist's Corner, Kyle of Lochalsh

Duncan Macpherson opened his pharmacy, seen here in the background, when he moved to Kyle of Lochalsh in 1912. It was situated at the junction of Main Street and Station Road, where there were plenty of passing visitors to and from the station and the jetty where the ferry crossed to Skye. In addition to the usual chemists' supplies, and because he was a very keen photographer himself, Macpherson stocked a wide range of photographic supplies. The shop also acted as the tourist office of the time, with Macpherson selling maps, souvenirs, and his famous Pocket Guide, which included all local information a traveller would need. The family photographed are unknown, but were either relatives or friends of the Macphersons
