Colour photograph of a display in a Kodak Australasia Pty Ltd Graphics Sales showroom circa 1960s. Showrooms were dedicated to specialised areas of business, such as medical, professional or business imaging. This showroom appears to be dedicated to the professional photography and graphics market only, and it sold specialist cameras, viewers, printers, copiers, papers and other products.
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.
