Crime DOES pay, if you're a dummy working for a 100 year old family business.

So If like me you grown up in the Cambridge area, you will be familiar with the name "Mackays of Cambridge" there's been a store on this site since 1912 and it's been in the same family since day one.

During it's time it's had connections to Dr Stephen Hawkins and various departments from the University of Cambridge, as a whole. As a specialist Engineering company and Ironmongers, Mackays has had connections to revolutionary spiral staircase design, Radio telescopes and 'Special projects' requested by people in suits during the war years.
