The Emerald Strand — Nineteenth-century Irish-born Manufacturers

By Keith Pescod

The contribution of the immigrant Irish to politics, law and professional life in general in Australia is well known, but a perception persists that few of the Irish had the skills or drive to set up manufacturing plants. That a vibrant emerald strand ran through the complex fabric of Victoria's industrial history is revealed in this elegant, original, informative study.
