Black and white silver gelatin photograph of two couples dancing in a factory storeroom - one pair passing underneath the arms of the other. There is a handmade sign reading 'Kodak Double K Square Dance Club' attached to a pallet behind the dancers. This was the Double K Square Dance Club, a social event organised by Kodak Australasia Pty Ltd staff at the Burnley factory, Richmond.
Marie de Camara (nee McKinley) is the woman on the left. She worked for Kodak for 35 years in total, commencing at Abbotsford, moving to Burnley and then finishing up at Coburg. She spent the majority of her working life at Burnley, and here we see the staff at a lively party there, enjoying social time together.
This photograph 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.
