Australia's 100 000th post-war Dutch migrant, Mrs Adriana Zevenbergen from Abbenbroek, 11 miles south of Rotterdam, lives with her husband Cornelis and their two sons in Geelong, Victoria. The Zevenbergens arrived in Australia in November, 1958. Geelong, an attractive seaport of 90 000 people 45 miles from Melbourne, is a fast developing city on the edge of rich farm country with many industries producing motor-cars, agricultural machinery, cement, textiles, glass and fertilizers. Dominating the northern skyline is the 30 000 000 Shell Oil Refinery where Cornelis is employed as a skilled fitter. Mrs Zevenbergen goes shopping with Addo. Here she is walking along a street in one of the town's housing Commission estates
