Kavanagh’s Pharmacy

Can you make out the bottles of Old Spice aftershave? Do you recognize any other products? Last month we had some lovely photos of Kavanagh’s Pharmacy on display at the Central Library. Since 1945, three generations of the Kavanagh family have run their Banksmeadow pharmacy.

These photos were taken in the early 1960’s when they moved to 1649 Botany Road, where they still operate today. As you can see many of the pharmacy’s products have changed, however if you visit now you will still see a number of wonderful old medicine bottles on some of the pharmacy’s shelves.
