An invitation addressed to Mr P.T. Hogan, Esquire, to attend the Official Opening of the Kodak Manufacturing Plant in Coburg on Friday 14th April 1961 at 2:15pm. The invitation was printed on cream cardboard with gold lettering and decorative embossing around the word 'Kodak'. It came accompanied by a typed letter from John Chester to all Kodak Senior Staff, explaining that they will all be expected to partake in the proceedings but the Board of Directors wanted to make sure Senior staff also received an official invitation.

This document 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.
