— Alex Saleeba, 2012

Christine Eid will present her paper 'Cut from the same cloth' (2012) which tells the story of Melbourne's clothing manufacturers and drapers, the Saleeba family, whose business spanned almost 100 years across 3 generations.

Organised by the Australian Lebanese Historical Society of Victoria, this presentation is part of an event focusing on Australian Lebanese clothing factories in Victoria.
