Gondoliers Programme 2


Here we have a nice advert for John Harwood, who arrived in the town in the 1920s and has been in the same spot ever since – I think this makes them unique?

I love the exotic sound of ‘foreign prescriptions dispensed’ but one has to remember that this advertisement appeared in 1933 and the National Health Service (with health care ‘free at point of delivery’) for everyone) didn’t arrive for about another 15 years……….
