Maidenhead Town Council in 1960

Posted by davidburbage on July 8, 2015

In charge of public health (which means trusting the food that is being sold!), housing, libraries, but not able to put up traffic lights without permission from the DfT ! Also great scenes from the town centre, including the old town hall and library.

Where is the bus at 3:58 ?

Where is Hill St? Is that Castle Hill ?

At 4:55 “We must increase the staff” !

At 9:55 “Council members are not permitted to vote on matters connected with their private business”. Oh how sensible and simple the rules were then. . . .

Mention of Standle Road and Parsons Lane – neither of which I am familiar with. Or the Meadow Lane Council Housing Estate.

And to finalise, the construction of the new Town Hall.
