Metal plaque on wooden board, taken from the Kodak factory site at Coburg. This was presented to Kodak (Australasia) Pty Ltd in 1993 by the Royal Life Saving Society for Kodak's 'generous support to lifesaving in Victoria'. This highlights Kodak's wider philanthropic activities in the Victorian community.

This plaque 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.
