His hands tell a story of lifetime toil

By Ieva Tomsons

THE MASSIVE hands of long-time Bakers Hill resident Eddie Seskas can attest to a lifetime of hard graft.

Eddie turns 88 next month and with a mind like a steel trap he easily rattles off names, dates, places and prices at the drop of a hat.

He is typical in many ways of Australia’s 1930s Depression-era children who grew up tough and had to work hard to help support their struggling families.
