Shop Assistant for Rome Innes’ Chemist shop in Lossiemouth

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.
