This page is dedicated to all paraphernalia connected with Mac Fisheries.
I will update on a regular basis as and when old or new material comes to light.
Any item forwarded to me will be added to the relevant pages and I will add your credits to it.
These two photographs and many more over the web-site have been supplied to me
from Mr Jason Maclean.
Jason's father, Mr Donald Maclean worked as logistics director for Mac Fisheries during
the 60s and 70s. He had offices at H.O. Bracknell and Jason also thinks he had one at Camberley. This sign hung outside one of his office doors.
Jason has also provided me with 62 Mac Fisheries posters, which his
father rescued from a rubbish skip during his time at Macs.
See the 'Advertising' page.
Another gift from the Mac Fisheries group given to:
Mr & Mrs C.J.Furber
by the Scottish managers and staff in August 1964.
A lovely silver trinket box with an adjustable, sectioned timber lined interior.
The following 12 photographs have been supplied to me by Miles Lanham.
The first 11 photos were taken at a small exhibition held at the Design Museum in 2007
dedicated to Hans Schleger's work.
Hans designed a great deal of packaging and posters for Mac Fisheries, along with other big
names like John Lewis Partnership etc
The Mac Turkey pic was photographed at the London Transport Museum by Miles.
This booklet was given to all new members of
Mac Market staff from approximately late 1960s
