Kent's the Chemists, East Molesey: shop front with mosaics
Kent's the Chemists, East Molesey: shop front with mosaics
This shop, on the corner of Walton and Spencer Roads, is a remarkable survival - we have to thank generations of pharmacists for having left it unaltered.

While the spelling 'Chymist' might suggest a date in the 1700's, an inscription on the glazing says 'Established 1869'. The inscriptions above and below the windows are mosaics - the jaunty style of the lettering looks to me as if it dates from the 1890's, or perhaps Edwardian times.
