Black and white photograph of No.1 coating station in the west wing of Building 2, Emulsion Department, at the Kodak Australasia Pty Ltd factory, Coburg circa 1963. This is the coating station with a C2SX hopper in position. The 'Snooperscope' is mounted in a convenient position to the right of the coating head below the control panel. Hopper suction is adjusted by the valves immediately below the coating sink. Five tempered water outlets and four tempered distilled water outlets in the holding sink give adequate supply for hopper jacket, and hopper flushing purposes. This photograph was accompanied by a typed information sheet describing the function of the room and the equipment used.
