Summary

A Kodak Processing envelope for Kodak 'Color Prints', used to store prints and negatives. This particular Kodak branding was in use circa 1994. This version has a perforated strip to remove the negative envelope, and promotional advertising printed on the lower front.

This is one of many of Kodak photograph and negative envelopes collected by former Kodak employee Yvonne Cameron. Yvonne 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 envelope 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.

Physical Description

Yellow envelope printed with Kodak Processing logo and a 'K' graphic consisting of 5 colour bars. There is a detachable negative envelope, on the back of which there are pictures of Koalas. Beneath that, on the lower front of the photographic envelope, there is a picture of Kodacolor Gold film against a blue, textured, background with black text.
