Mr Dolla Ribush and Mrs Rosa Ribush came from Russia. Their real surname is Ribushovski.

The factory was located at 127 Murphy Street, Richmond.

My father worked there and learnt his trade in confectionery.
My father is still alive today and remembers the factory fondly.
I am hoping to get more information soon.
