Ladies in the Dispensary…

October 4th, 2011

This photo I believe was taken around about 1983 for the 75th Anniversary of the hospital.

The lady on the left is Mrs Audrey Lewis who worked in the pharmacy from the early 1970ies until the mid eighties – thanks to David Lewis, Audrey’s son for the information.

The lady on the left is Mrs Helen Hilling who worked in the pharmacy until the 1990ies when she retired.
