Plastic insulated cooler bag used for storing and transporting photographic film. Cooler bags like these were released to promote various Kodak film products in the 1980s and 1990s. This bag promotes Kodak Professional Ektachrome 100 Plus film in 135, Roll and Sheet Film. The bag was likely made and issued post 1988, when Ektachrome 100 Plus film was launched.
It was donated by a former Kodak Australasia Pty Ltd staff member, Lawrence Kam Por Tsang, who worked in the Utilities department as an Engine Driver.
This object relates to 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.
Rectangular yellow plastic cooler bag with pink, blue, red and white stripes. It is padded with insulation and has two short straps attached with metal studs and rings. Printed text in red, black and blue. It contains a small white plastic manufacturing strip saying 'Made in Taiwan'.
