Scrapbook compiled by Kodak Australasia Pty Ltd between 1961 and 1962.

The contents include labels for Kodak film products, including colour, black and white, movie and x-ray film, as well as specialty films. The label on the front cover attributes these labels to Abbotsford and on the first page there is a list of instructions for the common label alterations made to Rochester designs by the graphics department, namely to places, measurement units, colour of lettering and positioning of text. The labels are organised by product type, and there are named tabs for each section.

This scrapbook 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.
