Black and white photograph of a Kodak Australasia Pty Ltd exhibition display stand at the Sydney Royal Agricultural Society (RAS) Show, 1963. This view, taken from a corner of the stand, shows its general layout and positioning in the exhibition hall, with posters and different display areas compartmentalised with dividing display panels. Panels read: 'Photography serves the World of Commerce' and 'Photography in the Service of Mankind'. There is a large photographic poster of a baby at the right side of the image, with decorative indoor plants in front of it.

This photograph is one of six in a series from this event. It 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.

Kodak 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.
