Cheers numanfan I would like to see that if you dig it out. As you say Clarke could have been there for some time..I have searched Google for Directories but cannot seem to find any so thanks for what you have given me.

The shop could well of been there for years - that's the earliest Kelly's I have.

I don't think I've got a photo of the exact shop, but I'm sure somewhere there's a shot of the 'parade' it was in. I'll try & find it later.

Excellent, thankyou numanfan, it is later than I thought judging by the lip design and manufacture..you wouldn't happen to have a photo would you :) please. Once again thanks so much SB.

William Edward Clarke, Chemist.

28 High Street, Strood. 1937 Kelly's.

Heading towards Rochester Bridge from Strood, this was on the left hand side, a few shops along from Station Road.

I found this little, 5 inches apprx tall,  medicine bottle at the bootfair today and wonder if anyone knows of the Chemist shop? and dare I ask has a picture :) and when it was running in Strood. It looks to date from apprx 1890's - 1920's Thanks SB.
