Social History

In the 1930’s, this was Hannaford’s, a ham and beef shop usually retained for retail user but being remodelled at the time of publication.

Hannafords was at the centre of a small and very local community. Nancy Maclntosh (who has lived nearby in the same house since c.1934) remembers that as a child, she was often sent out to buy small amounts of butter from Hannaford’s. Whether that was because the family could not afford more or because they had a Coolgardie safe and not an ice-chest or a fridge, she does not know.
