Black and white, glass plate negative of the Kodak Australasia Pty Ltd football team posing for a group portrait circa 1930s.

The team of youth and young men are positioned in the middle of a grassy field, wearing striped singlets, nailed boots and small, dark shorts, and all have their arms crossed. Two older men in suits are sitting in the middle and are probably the team coaches.

Kodak manufactured and distributed a wide range of photographic products to Australasia, such as film, paper, chemicals, cameras and miscellaneous equipment.
