Black and white photograph of an interior section of a Kodak Australasia Pty Ltd exhibition stand, circa 1940s. This section focuses on X-Ray imaging for both medical and industrial purposes. There is a wall of backlit x-rays, plus equipment arranged along the walls.
This photograph 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.
