Alternative name: Negative Sleeve
Kodak Australasia Pty Ltd branded re-order envelope for colour negatives and slides. It has a form on the front for selecting size and quantity of prints, and on the back is an advertisement for Kodacolor Gold film, with the tag line "Trust Kodak to Capture the Moment" and a colour illustration of a film box, accompanied by the Kodak Processing Lab logo.
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.
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.
White paper envelope with black text and a colour illustration of a Kodak Gold film box.
