Very different from modern retailing and pharmacy is Dow's Pharmacy in Chiltern. The extent to which retailing and the science of pharmacy and medicine have changed is well highlighted at Dow's Pharmacy. Built in 1859, the pharmacy remained open until 1968 and was operated by Hilda and Roy Dow from 1929.
