In 1892 this pharmacy, along with that of JT Osmond & Co, was an honorary dispenser of the newly-established Sydney Homœopathic Dispensary (the second attempt to establish this organisation).


In 1895 Dr Richard Wallace delivered a lecture before “the Assistant Chemists’ Association of New South Wales” at Fisher’s Homœopathic Pharmacy. He recommended the establishment of a homœopathic hospital in Sydney – “the only city with over 300,000 inhabitants which has not one”. This pharmacy was located at 337 George Street. The Pharmacy was also listed in the Sydney Directories for 1900, 1902 and 1904. During that period it was one of four homœopathic pharmacies in Sydney. In 1913 the company was also listed under the category of ‘homœopathists’. By 1919 the company was still advertising as “Homœopathic and Dispensing Chemists”.
