Boots the Chemist

Introduction
Based on 16 Goosegate in Nottingham, Boots is part of Hazle’s Millennium series. It ended in 2005 and this Victorian LP5 is on bisques that Hazle found in 2008. Unlike the blue original, it is all hand painted with no transfers. There are certificates for the LP5 but, like the first four Sainsbury’s, no LE numbers. Farm worker John Boot learned herbalism from his father and got the doctors’ monopoly on dispensing removed.

Boots the Chemist
Rare Prototype & No 1 of LP5
on Nottingham

The Market Bar has leased 16 Goosegate since 2001. As a listed building the old frontage should be underneath. Jesse moved here in 1877 and soon expanded to Nos 18-20 next door, having the green cast-iron frontage built in 1882.

This Victorian LP5 has a new green colourway and fully hand painted wndows with different artefacts to the “1950s” LE2000. The other 4 Nos have a “Boots” title and no “The Chemist“
