Maynes Pharmacy

Maynes Pharmacy

Maynes pharmacy has recently been converted to a wine bar and it is gratifying to note that the original façade has been retained and restored. It has one of the best mid century shop-fronts in the city. Whilst the original lettering has been removed, the mosaic wall tiles, high Chromium steel window frames and extensive glazing remain and are typical of this period. The design in black, picked out with gold tiles and bright steel is by Frank Murphy (c1960). A much earlier advertising mosaic for the pharmacy can be seen high up on the gable wall.
