A photograph of Kodak Australasia employees at the Kodak Australasia Sales Conference, held at the Gold Coast, Queensland circa 1988. The group are informally gathered behind a table, partaking in a workshop activity. They have worksheets and are talking with one another. The woman in the middle (fourth person from the left) is Jill Morris, Secretary to John Mitcham.
This photograph was donated by Louis Shane Allan (commonly known as Shane) who worked with the company from 1965 to 2002 in various roles. He started off in planning and stock control, later moving to managing government contracts, before he became Kodak's Ombudsman with the job of resolving difficult problems with customers.
This image was donated as part of the Kodak Oral History Project. It complements the Kodak Heritage 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.
