Chave & Jackson.

Mr.J.J,Jackson pictured in the doorway of Chave & Jackson in 1904.Opened in 1830 at number 6 Broad Street by Mr.Henry Llanwarne.The chemist was known as "Duggan & Chave" until Mr. Duggan retired in 1868.The business then traded under the name "W.S..Chave" until
Mr. Jackson arrived from London in 1880 to form the name as we know it today Chave & Jackson.The store still occupies the same site and also took over number 7 Broad Street for major refurbishment in 1964.
Many Thanks to Pauline Williams of Chave & Jackson.
