1 2 3 4

Boots is the UK’s leading pharmacist with a rich history spanning 167 years. Founded in 1849 by John Boot, the pharmacy was taken over by his son Jessie Boot in 1860.

More recently after archivists have looked deeper into the history of their retail and product development, a light has been cast upon a character that has until now been looked over. Lady Florence Boot, not only the wife of Jessie Boot but, unkown until now, the uncredited business partner and pioneering force behind the Boots brand.
