Black and white photograph of the office and behind the scenes processing area of the Kodak Australasia Pty Ltd shop in Townsville, Queensland, circa 1960s. This may have also been an area where wholesale orders were processed, or developing orders were received, as there is a high counter near the doorway to the retail shop. In the foreground are office desks and shelves of product. All are scarcely furnished, indicating this was a new set up, perhaps post-renovation.
This image 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.
