Flyback Fridays - Bob Priest 2010 - Early Medical Services

Welcome to Flyback Fridays - a glimpse into Pemberton’s past!  This season we will bring you stories and videos from Tea & Tales and our video archives over the last decade that highlight Pioneer life and the resiliency of early settlers and First Nations.  We will also share videos and stories that show how local residents have responded to emergencies and challenges in the past, illustrating the power of community ties through all kinds of difficulties – yesterday and today.

This is an excerpt from Tea & Tales in 2010.  In this excerpt Bob Priest remembers moving to Pemberton and establishing the first pharmacy here in 1964. Bob also talks about being a pharmacist in the 1960s, early medical services in Pemberton, public nurses, getting to the hospital and early doctors.  Watch it here.
