Black and white photograph of the shop front window display in Kodak Australasia Limited's retail store on Queen Street, Brisbane, 1920.
The display promotes an upcoming touring show by Harry K Eustace. Eustace was an American touring showman who travelled through Africa taking photographic and moving footage and then touring the world with his stageshow telling the story of his African journey. The display in the Kodak shop window features an elaborate illustrated backdrop listing the details of the show, to be presented at 'West's Olympia' on December 11th. There are photographs arranged throughout the display and reference to Eustace's use of a Kodak camera.
This photograph 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.
