During Tasmanian Immigration Week, June 5-12, 1960, a survey disclosed that post war migrants made up about 10% 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 stations. Big spanners for a big job. German fitters Herbert Seppelt, 32 (left) a leading hand and Alois Stephan, 23 work on one of the giant rotary calciner kilns at Bell Bay aluminium works. Herbert came to Australia from Hamburg and has worked at Bell Bay for 7 years, having taken part in the construction of the plant. Alois has been here for one year and already spoke English well
