Summary

Kodak Film Wallet manufactured by Kodak Australasia Pty Ltd circa 1920 - 1945. This appears to have been used in Kodak to store images of their Riley Street property in Sydney, New South Wales.

The cover features an illustration of a woman in a draped gown holding a Kodak folding camera. The inner pockets of the folder are printed with promotional text for N-C (Non-Curling) Film and enlargements. The catch phrase 'If it isn't Eastman, it isn't Kodak film' is used to stress brand integrity and quality.

This object 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.
