Summary

Black and white photograph of Marie de Camara (nee McKinley) and two Kodak colleagues. Marie is holding a large bunch of flowers wrapped in cellophane. A woman in front of her is presenting the flowers and a man in a suit stands proudly by. This was presumably a gift given upon her retirement from Kodak Australasia Pty Ltd at Coburg in 1981.

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 but here she is pictured at the end of her career, being given tokens of appreciation for her work.

This photograph 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.
