Lossiemouth from Prospect Terrace

Doreen did a variety of jobs at the chemist including cleaning the shop, serving the public, handling prescriptions and giving them to the chemist. She also decorated the windows and kept the shelves stocked. She started work there in 1955 and worked there for 4 years. During the summer the chemist was very busy selling sun lotion to holidaymakers from Glasgow. The trains to Lossiemouth were busy with people coming to Lossiemouth on holiday.
