Security Pass used by Kodak Australasia Pty Ltd employee, Gordana Duzdevich, Coburg, 1968-1977

Gordana had recently migrated to Australia when she found her first job at Kodak in 1968, working in Building 20. Gordana was the only woman to operate a film processing machine in the 1960s. She was later promoted to an office job, involving recording data for improving productivity in film processing. In a related interview, she describes the process of printing Kodachrome films, and her work in the office punching data into a computer. Gordana's working life gives some insights into the multicultural and class structure of Kodak's workforce.

This pass 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.
