John C. Hunter
John C. Hunter, Chemist, 99, Great Western Road, opposite Burnbank Place.—
An establishment of great distinction in its line is that conducted by Mr. John C. Hunter, the sole proprietor, which was founded by him in 1872. The Pharmacy has an attractive street frontage ; the stock is composed entirely of drugs, chemicals, and pharmaceutical preparations of the best and finest quality.
A leading feature in Mr. Hunter’s business is the dispensing department, to which the most studied attention is devoted. The great speciality, however, is the manufacture of a preparation known as “Magnesio Pyre”, which is a most effective article for rendering the process of taking photographs by night. An extensive high-class local and family trade is conducted by Mr. Hunter, who is a gentleman of high status in the profession, and an associate of the Pharmaceutical Society.
