This includes operators “engaged in the purchase and onselling, the commission based buying, and the commission based selling of goods, without significant transformation, to business.” (Trewin and Pink, 2006, p. 219)


Although such operators do not fall strictly within the scope of the Ballarat and District Industrial Heritage Project, such operators may have performed secondary industrial activities that contributed to the industrial heritage of Ballarat and district and should be included here.
