Mackintosh Families in Australia
McIntosh, MacIntosh, Mackintosh, M‘Intosh (and all other variations)
NAA Description: Commonwealth Scholarship and Fellowship plan students - Evan Mackintosh
The Commonwealth Scholarship and Fellowship Plan (CSFP) is an international programme under which Commonwealth governments offer scholarships and fellowships to citizens of other Commonwealth countries*.
Evan is not a common name in Australian Mackintosh families and this Evan would be a grandson of the ones we have in the Archives.
Anyone know Evan?

NAA Description: Australia's only outdoor ice rink, built by the Sydney City Council in Prince Alfred Park at a cost of ŁA80,000, was opened on June 2, 1959. Miss Barbara Mackintosh, one of the first to use the rink, poses at the side.
Barbara certainly looks like she is comfortable on the ice. Does anyone know a Barbara who was a whiz with the skates?"

NAA Description: Telegram boys R Burke and J MacIntosh
Despite having a date of 1900, I believe this photograph was taken much later. Perhaps the 1940-60s?

NAA Description: Former Scottish businessman David Mackintosh migrated from Grenoch to Perth, Western Australia, four years ago because high income tax was leaving him little profit. Now working as a labourer on building projects, David earns an average 17 Pounds Australian for a 40 hour week. He said that to equal this in his own business in Scotland, he had to work up to 12 hours a day and seven days a week. David mixes cement on the site of the Games village, which will provide 150 new homes for visiting athletes.
What happened to David after the Games Village was completed? Did he stay or did her return to the UK? Anyone know?
