Dissent on the streets of Macleod!

Posted on Wednesday, 15th July 2020 by Janine Rizzetti

If you ask anyone who was living in Macleod in the 1950s and 1960s, the overwhelming memory is of the roads- or the lack of them! Until the mid-1960s, the streets of Macleod were unmade. They were dusty in summer, muddy in winter, with deep channels gouged out either side.

This photo from August 1961 shows a residents’ meeting in the Macleod Shopping Centre to discuss the roads in the area. The double-storey buildings in the background are the current Mr Macleod and Ciccone businesses. There are signs advertising products from the past: Toppa Ice Cream, the Sporting Globe and the Sun. There’s an old red telephone box there too, and the fruit shop is displaying its 45- telephone number.
