Newnham & Slipp Pharmacy / Pharmacie Newnham & Slipp
Main Street / rue Principale
With "thirty new fish-barrels of my stock in trade", is how William T. Baird described his 1839 start in the drugstore business. Bought in Saint John, his stock traveled up the St. John River - from Fredericton to Woodstock by tow boat. Rebuilding after each disastrous fire in Woodstock (1860 and 1877), he continued to provide services for the area. Although the name has changed, this building has been a drug store since 1878.
« C'est avec trente barils à poisson en stock que j'ai commencé sur le marché. » C'est de cette façon que T.Baird décrit ses débuts, dans le monde de la pharmacie en 1839. Acheté à St-Jean, son inventaire voyagea de St-Jean jusqu'à Fredericton et ensuite à Woodstock par bateau. Reconstruite deux fois après deux grands incendies (1860 à 1877), la pharmacie continua à offrir ses services à la région. À travers le temps le nom à changé, mais cet édifice est demeuré une pharmacie depuis 1878.
