This black and white silver gelatin print is an example of Kodak Bromide Paper, as part of a promotion in the 1920s-1930s, prior to World War II.
The photograph is a part of a scrapbook compiled by Kodak Australasia, Abbotsford, in the 1930s. It contains 61 promotional items produced before World War II. These include colour promotional material such as brochures and posters for Kodak products that were mainly made in Australia. The subjects include cameras, film, processing equipment and products, printing papers, moving footage products and equipment, and educational information on using Kodak products. The scrapbook contains special promotions such as advertising material relating to Christmas, scouting and tourism. For example, "Canberra calls your Kodak" and "Souvenir of 1938-39 Jambouree". It also contains advertising for specialist materials such as x-ray products for the medical and dentistry profession.
This scrapbook is part of the Kodak collection of products, promotional materials, photographs and working life artifacts collected from Kodak Australasia in 2005 when the Melbourne manufacturing plant at Coburg closed down.
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.
