Black and white photograph of the dispersion making room on the 2nd floor of Building 2, Emulsion Department, at the Kodak Australasia Pty Ltd factory, Coburg circa 1963. This image shows the high temperature kettle and the making kettle connected to the homogeniser. This in turn is connected to the two surge kettles. On account of the explosive nature of the solvents, the area has flameproof wiring of electrical equipment and is fitted with explosion sashes.
