Photographic safelight used in the photographic darkroom of a former Kodak employee.

The donor, an electrical engineer, purchased the process camera for private use when it became surplus to the Engineering Department at Kodak, and used it at home to produce negatives for electronic circuit boards and screen printing. He designed and made specialised battery chargers, mainly for use with underwater lighting systems used in cave diving, and the camera was very useful for making the circuit boards in these devices. The screen printing he did was mainly for the printing of t-shirts for various clubs and associations, but also to print curtain materials and even the donor's wedding invitations, using custom artwork by a local artist.
