   Maclean's were a highly respected builder originally founded about 1919. They continued in the same hands right through to the early 1960s when the name was bought by Holdsworthy Limited. They had a number of premises before ending up in Upper St., Islington. Among their offering was a very fancy lugged frame, the Apollo starting about 1954. (Thanks to Hilary Stone)

    A fondly remembered greater London marque, it succumbed in Nov, 1962:
