Black and white photograph of the making kettle in the U/Batch making room on the 2nd floor of Building 2, Emulsion Department, at the Kodak Australasia Pty Ltd factory, Coburg circa 1963.

The U/Batch room houses one 20 U.S. gallon kettle with four insulated salts/silver kettles mounted around it. The dial of the scale for weighing of distilled water is controlled from the catwalk behind the salts/silver kettles, whilst the scale platform and stainless steel tank for the distilled water are mounted against the ceiling, so the water can be delivered to the making kettle or any of the salts/silver kettles by gravity.

Part of a photographic album produced by Kodak Australasia Pty Ltd, Coburg, containing approximately 70 black and white 8 x 10 inch photographic prints of the Emulsion Department; plans of the plant; colour photographs of the Emulsion Department management staff and Development and Production Supervision staff.

The album belonged to Ian 'Charlie' Yelland, who worked for Kodak Australasia Emulsion Department for 46 years, retiring in 1978.
