CONTEXT

Administrative/Biographical history: The chemist business was established in Llandrindod Wells, Radnorshire, in about 1878. William Wilson Johnson (1860-1947), chemist and druggist, from Derby, Derbyshire, acquired the business, and in 1911 he held two shops in High Street (Clevedon) and Temple Street (next to the Beaufort and Windsor House). He lived at his High Street shop, with his wife, daughter, and two servants. By 1926, Johnson had closed the shop in High Street and established a new shop in Park Crescent. The business was sold to George Hilliar, a former apprentice to Johnson, by 1948. The Temple Street shop seems to have closed about 1953.
