content

When he arrived in Western Australia ten months ago Stan Roller (24), a New Australian from Czechoslovakia, set about establishing himself at the only work he knows-crystal
working and glass-cutting. He teamed up with Mr. P. Levitt,
an engineer, who made the necessary equipment to
commence the enterprise. Since then the small factory has
gradually been expanded to cope with the demand for their
work, and new assistants have been added to the staff.
Pictures show scenes at the factory.
