A black and white, half plate negative featuring a group of men and women standing in the metal crowd barriers at the booths of a sporting venue, with a grandstand visible in the background. The provenance of this image is unclear, but it came from the Kodak corporate museum at Coburg. This could be taken on a ferry or on a pier - perhaps in Sydney, but further research is required.
This image is part of the Kodak 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.
