Metal plaque on wooden board from Kodak factory site at Coburg, originally presented to Kodak Australasia Pty Ltd by the National Museum of Victoria. The plaque commemorates the exhibition 'Dinosaurs from China' and was likely given in recognition of Kodaks sponsorship and support of the exhibition or the Museum more broadly. It shows Kodak's philanthropic work in the community and a continuing working relationship between Kodak and Museum Victoria.

This poster is part of 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.
