Summary

Colour photograph of Kodak employee Bill Byron working while speaking on the telephone at his desk at the Kodak Australasia Pty Ltd plant in Coburg 1976, possibly in Building 20.

Bill worked for Kodak for over 25 years, commencing at Abbotsford in 1956 in Kodachrome customer service. He later moved into quality control, before leaving the company to work in the motion film industry for 9 years. He returned to Coburg in 1975 and worked there in various roles, again relating to customer service and technical services, including industrial photography. This photograph was taken shortly after Bill's return to the company.

This object was donated as part of the Kodak Oral History Project. It complements the Kodak Heritage 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.
