Jessie worked serving medicines and making up medicines in Rome Innes’ shop.
Rome Innes may be part of the Innes family which came from Portgordon. There appears to be a Rome Innes born in 1896 and dies in 1960. It is an unusual name. The family appear to have a chemist shop in Lossiemouth (George Rome Innes) so it would make sense that they could have one in Buckie as well.
