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.

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.

Thank you Miles
