Kodak Film Wallet manufactured by Kodak Australasia Pty Ltd circa 1920s to 1930s and stamped with the details of James Barnes, Chemist of Manuka Pharmacy Warrnambool. The cover features a woman with a camera and picnic basket. The inner pockets of the wallet are printed with promotional text for Enlargement services and Kodak Film, and the Graflex 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.
