Letter from Thomas Baker, Managing Director of Kodak Australasia Limited, to George Eastman, Director of Eastman Kodak Company, dated 31 May 1913. Baker discusses his neuritis, and then goes on to discuss the Australian political situation and his dissatisfaction with the Labor Party leading up to a forthcoming election. He expects his party (not stated) to lose because the bad weather is likely to mean less turnout for their apathetic voters compared to the 'other side' voting 'to the last man and woman, woman having the suffrage in Australia'. This letter is not signed and was likely a draft.

This is one of 29 letters in an incomplete series of communications between Eastman and Baker.

This object 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.
