Black and white photograph of the dye and doctor dispensing room in the west wing of Building 2, Emulsion Department, at the Kodak Australasia Pty Ltd factory, Coburg circa 1963. Dye and doctor solutions are prepared in the east wing and delivered in bulk quantities to the J.5 area. They are then dispensed into the actual amounts for each melt and passed onto the melting room. This was taken prior to the installation of proposed dispensing equipment for the dyes and doctors. This photograph was accompanied by a typed information sheet describing the function of the room and the equipment used.
