Summary

Noel Monteith's Kodak Australasia Pty Ltd business card circa 1966 to 1976, which identifies him as the Manager of the Employee Benefits Department, based at Coburg.

Noel joined Kodak in January 1939 and retired in 1981 after a career of 42 years. Noel's father had also had a long career at Kodak in the early 20th century.

This business card shows how the Kodak company took advantage of its core business ie photography, to visually present its staff and promote its business - we can see the face of the person on the card, as well as read of their position in the company.

This document 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.
