Boots the Chemists on Market Square, decorated for the visit of Edward, Prince of Wales in the late 1920s.

Despite the Elizabethan appearance of the building, it was only built in the early 1900s. This early store was not the company’s first base in the city as they first operated from a base on Westgate between the Bull Hotel and Westgate House.
