Kodak Film Wallet likely manufactured by Kodak Australasia Pty Ltd circa 1925 - 1927 and stamped with the business name 'Prince's Highway Studio'. The cover features a 'Kodak Girl' in striped dress carrying a folding camera against the backdrop of a group on a picnic. The inner pockets of the wallet are printed with promotional text for Enlargement services and N-C (Non-Curling) Film, and the Cine-Kodak Model B camera is promoted on the back.

This is one of the few examples that show how these envelopes could be branded by different participating retailers and pharmacists for use in their photo-developing and printing business.

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.

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.
