Black and white, sepia toned silver gelatin photograph of an Airgraph Film Inspection Projector, Kodak Australasia, 1920-1940.
The machine was used to identify errors in film. The film was possibly projected on the wall and then viewed.
Kodak manufactured and distributed a wide range of photographic products to Australasia, such as film, paper, chemicals, cameras and miscellaneous equipment. Its client base included amateur and professional photographers, as well as specialist medical and graphic art professionals who used photography, x-ray and other imaging techniques.
This photograph is part of the Kodak collection of products, promotional materials, photographs and working life artefacts collected from Kodak Australasia in 2005, when the Melbourne manufacturing plant at Coburg closed down.
