Black and white negative of a Kodak Australasia Pty Ltd projection room in Tasmania, likely taken in the late 1930s. There is a 'Kodachrome for Color' banner at the front of the room beneath the projection screen, several rolls of folding chairs either side of the room, and a cabinet in the right foreground filled with Kodak merchandise. There are Kodak advertising posters and products decorating the space.

This image 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.
