Drive down memory lane: Chicka Madden

Uncle Chicka Madden drives around Alexandria showing places where Aboriginal people used to work in the 1950’s and 60’s: Federal Matches, Butler and Norman’s bottle wash and “Abo fertiliser’s”. Many people came here from the country during the Depression and onwards looking for work, but some are now returning with the advent of land councils and other opportunities back in rural areas.
