Leeton was first developed as part of the Murrumbidgee Irrigation Area or the MIA in the early part of the 20th Century so many of the buildings date from that period and many have Art Deco features.
103-107 Pine Avenue was built in 1928 for the local newspaper and it still occupies No 107.
And I think it has one of the best names for a newspaper that I have ever heard ... The Murrumbidgee Irrigator.
