Colour photograph from an album containing a personal story of Julius Toth's immigration experience and a collection of 40 photo reproductions. Julius left Hungary late in 1956 following the unsuccessful Hungarian revolution and subsequent Soviet Occupation. He escaped to Austria where he spent three months in Displaced Persons Camps before migrating to Australia in March 1957. This image shows a worker attending to a sand mould. Julius pioneered this moulding technique in the 1970s and further developed it during the 1980s to develop a very smooth surface on the casting.
