Video: The Ragtrade: The Story of Flinders Lane

Melissa Rymer wrote, directed and produced this 14:50 video which was made in conjunction with an exhibition at the Jewish Museum of Australia. It is a small snapshot of some of the Jewish run businesses that operated out of Flinders Lane, the fashion district of Melbourne in the late 1940s through to the late 1980s.  It includes historic images intercut with oral histories of former employees and employers.
