Chromatic Outlook (Post#51) : Sargent’s Pharmacy
Photos of the day are all about Sargent’s Pharmacy, the opposite building of Castle Hotel which still stands in the corner of South Street and Avon Terrace. The name of the building was after Obeithio Sargent who built the shop in 1904. His family lives in the top floor while the pharmacy in the ground floor. His son named Oswald Hewlett Sargent who was also trained as pharmacist and his wife Gertrude Victoria Onions continued the pharmacy business. Historically, Oswald received the first Webster Memorial Prize for achieving the highest marks in the final examinations and his collection of plants became part of Western Australian Herbarium. These photos are part of Wheatbelt Region Tour October 2016.
