McLean's Inglewood Central Cash Store van
James McLean's 1936 model Ford V8, used as the grocery van for McLean's Central Cash Store in Inglewood. The motor and chassis were imported as a unit and then the body work was built by Mr J. Wilson, whose workshop was in Cutfield Street, Inglewood. The van was painted bright red and the wheels were made of solid rubber. The van is parked at the back of the shop, which was on a section that is now 90 Rata Street, Inglewood. The nose of the van is pointing towards the storeroom and back door of the grocery store. Photograph taken by Sidney G. S. Lovell, son-in-law of James McLean, who became manager of the business after McLean died in October 1935.
