Scope and content

The original Jack and Newell's Mareeba store in Mareeba was built after the Cairns-Kuranda railway line was extended in 1893 to Mareeba (then called Granite Creek). With the new railway station came the building of a large Jack and Newell general store. According to the Cairns Post the new bulk store of Jack and Newell was completed in November 1936. There was a Jack and Newell Store on the intersection of Byrnes (possibly originally called Byrne) and Atherton Streets. In the late 1950s the Jack and Newell Store in Mareeba was demolished and rebuilt. This file consists of 9 architectural drawings for the proposed new premises at Mareeba for Jack and Newell Pty Ltd from the mid 1930s. Unable to verify that this the building that was constructed in 1936.
