During Tasmanian Immigration Week, June 5-12, 1960, a survey disclosed that post-war migrants made up about 10 per cent of the men and women who keep Hobart "ticking" and plan and build for the future. These people ranged from architects to bricklayers, from typists to bus drivers. They work in factories and offices, shops and power station. Pictures in this series show some of Tasmania's post-war settlers at their jobs.
