Black and white lantern slide featuring a photograph of man holding a pole or spear on an outrigger canoe, mountains in the distance circa 1930s. It appears to be related to two other photographs taken in the Pacific (MM 138005, MM 138006). It is unclear how this slide came to be in the Kodak Australasia Pty Ltd corporate collection.

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.
