This includes operators “engaged in the physical or chemical transformation of materials, substances or components into new products (except agriculture and construction)” (Trewin and Pink, 2006, p. 106) – both from light industry and heavy industry.

E.g. plants, factories, mills, bakeries, and milliners are all part of this division.



Blacksmiths on the Goldfields

To the Editor of “The Courier.”
Sir.-Your correspondent “Prickly Pear,” in referring to the reported attitude of the A.N.A. concerning the above, uses these words “There seems to me to be no breadth of vision in such an attitude; it is parochial in the extreme.” Breadth of vision is an essential qualification when applied to things, either for the advancement of national ideas or even for the welfare of Ballarat. Happy are they who possess the former, and who practically apply it to Ballarat as the girls at Lucas’ have. Next Tuesday evening, at the City Hall, a lecture is to be given by a Mr Perrott, of the Institute of Victorian Industries, entitled “The Possibilities of Ballarat as a Manufacturing Centre.” The lecture is free. Let “Prickly Pear” join with hundreds of others, and by attending at the City Hall demonstrate by his presence that he and they at all events have that “breadth of vision” of which your correspondent speaks.-Yours, &c.,
