Kyle Pharmacy Request for Vermin Control

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.

This letter reads:
Portmore Sawmills,
Via Lochalsh

Sir just a few lines you might send on some stuff for to kill vermin in bed as they are not very clean here so many going and coming.

I remain
Wm Burgess

The request is a comment on living and working conditions at the time, as well as the role of the local pharmacist before the introduction of the National Health Service
