Colour photograph of the interior of 'Kodak House' on Elizabeth St, Hobart, Tasmania, circa 1959. Two Kodak staff stand behind the counter, with streamers and balloons strung across the ceiling above them.

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.
