This pharmacy was in Oxford. It had a green cross painted on it to signify that it was a pharmacy. It sold items such as medicine, biscuits and juice, as well as those needed for babycare. It had two floors, the second of which had a storeroom, bathroom, kitchen and another which was empty.
It was from the window in the upper floor that Malcolm saw the devastation the flood had caused. Malcolm saw a floating, dead woman in the middle of the street and saw another calling for help from her house.
