Kodak Australasia Pty Ltd branded envelope for processing negatives or smaller photographs into black and white 'Super-Size Prints'. This example has the user's surname 'Cameron' written on it and inscriptions on the back indicate that this was used to house a collection of photographs titled 'Animals and Birds', perhaps for a photographic competition or Kodak Camera Club event.

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.
