Summary

Black and white silver gelatin group portrait photograph of the Double K Square Dance Club, a social event organised by Kodak Australasia Pty Ltd staff at the Burnley factory, Richmond. Here the group are posing in front of pallet racking with the handmade Double K sign adhered behind them. Several girls hold their skirts wide in a half curtsey.

Marie de Camara (nee McKinley) is the woman second from the front. Marie worked for Kodak for 35 years in total, commencing at Abbotsford, moving to Burnley and then finishing up at Coburg. She spent the majority of her working life at Burnley, and here we see the staff at a lively party there, enjoying social time together.

This document 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.
