Summary

A large Kodak branded envelope used to store Kodak Advantix prints and negatives after processing. This is a special edition envelope with Sydney 2000 Olympic sponsorship logo on the front. Advantix was the first Kodak digital camera available on the market.

This is one of many of Kodak photograph and negative envelopes collected by former Kodak employee Yvonne Cameron. Yvonne not only worked in the canteen and staff shop at Coburg from 1964 to 1975, she was an active member of the Kodak Camera Club. She also lived in a street behind the factory and watched as the factory was constructed in the late 1950s, saw through its various phases of development and then she witnessed its final closure and demolition from 2004 - 2011.

This envelope 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.
