Black and white photograph of the shop front window display in a Baker & Rouse Pty Ltd store in Sydney, New South Wales, circa 1908. This photograph may have been taken just prior to or just post the creation of Australian Kodak Limited in 1908. The display features Kodak folding view cameras on tripods, several framed photographs and posters, and advertisements for Eastman Non Curling film, which was first released in 1903.

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.
