Black and white photograph of the shop front window display in Kodak Australasia Limited's retail store on Queen Street, Brisbane, circa 1920.
The holiday display features all manner of Kodak product, from cameras, film and tripods to decorative photo wallets and portable developing tanks. A large oval sign in the centre of the display reads: 'The Combination: Link Them for Results'. At either end of this oval is a poster - one featuring a Kodak camera and the other reading 'Our Finishing Department', pressing consumers to use Kodak services as well as product. There is a small sign in the display which reads 'Kodak Widh You the Compliments of the Season'
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.
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.
