Marie McKinley (later de Camara) and two male Kodak colleagues. Marie is holding a still life floral painting, presumably a gift given upon her retirement from Kodak Australasia Pty Ltd at Coburg in 1981.

Marie 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 in the Powder & Solution Department, but here she is pictured at the end of her career, being given tokens of appreciation for her work.

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.

Kodak Australasia Pty Ltd 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.
