Summary

Monochrome photograph of two kettles in the paper holding room at Kodak Australasia Pty Ltd, Abbotsford. The kettle in the foreground shows how emulsion is run down through a filter from the melting kettle. The filter consists of a cylindrical stainless steel funnel, tapering slightly, with filtering medium (fine lawn) stretched across the bottom.

This image is part of an album produced by Kodak, titled 'Emulsion Department: Production and Experimental'. It belonged to Ian 'Charlie' Yelland, who worked for Kodak Australasia Emulsion Department for 46 years, retiring in 1978.
