Alternative name: Hat
A yellow and black cap produced to celebrate 112 years of Kodak Australasia Pty Ltd manufacturing sensitised emulsion products, including glass plates and Kodacolor roll film, in Australia, from 1884 - 1996. This cap was worn by former Kodak Australasia Pty Ltd employee, Brian Flynn.
Brian worked in Kodak Australasia's Emulsion Department for 17 years until the Coburg factory was closed in 2004. An oral history was conducted in 2014 with Brian about his working life at Kodak.
This object 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.
