Kyle Pharmacy Request for Poison

Duncan Macpherson set up his pharmacy in Kyle of Lochalsh in 1912 and supplied not only medicines and other chemist related items such as toothbrushes and shampoos, but also tourist information, postcards and photographic materials.

As this request demonstrates, treatments for animals were also supplied from the pharmacy, however, it is not recorded how much poison was "sufficient to kill a large collie dog instantaneously"
