A colour, aerial photograph of the Kodak Australasia Pty Ltd factory complex and its suburban surrounds in Coburg, 1980. The building in the foreground is Building 21, the Distribution Centre, which despatched factory products to retailers around Australia and the world.

This image was donated as part of the Kodak Oral History Project. It complements the Kodak Heritage 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.
