A photocopied flyer distributed by the Kodak Neighbourhood Action Group or 'KNAG', about 'Community Issues' relating to the re-development of the Kodak Australasia factory site at Coburg into residential and commercial developments. There is a handwritten note on this copy announcing a meeting on Saturday 14th October at Newland Community Centre. 'BE THERE!' is the final inscription. The flyer is essentially an aerial photograph of the former factory site with overlaid comments about community concerns and requests for the re-development.

The donor, Yvonne Cameron not only worked in the canteen and staff shop at Coburg from 1964 to 1975, she was an active member of the Kodak Camera Club. She also lived in a street behind the factory and watched as the factory was constructed in the late 1950s, saw through its various phases of development and then she witnessed its final closure and demolition from 2004 - 2011.

This document 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.
