Silver metal soup spoon issued by Kodak Australasia Pty Ltd for use in the staff canteen at Abbotsford, and used by former Kodak employee Thelma McGregor circa 1940s.

Thelma McGregor (later Thelma Sneazwell) and her sister Freda (later Freda Cuthbert) both worked at Kodak. Thelma worked in Developing and Printing from 1939 - early 1950s and Freda worked in the Plate Department from 1935-1941 and 1942-1945. Thelma and Freda have provided some of the earliest memories of Kodak Australasia working life, which are captured in an oral history interview that is also in the collection.

Kodak manufactured and distributed a wide range of photographic products to Australasia, such as film, paper, chemicals, cameras and miscellaneous equipment. Its client base included amateur and professional photographers, as well as specialist medical and graphic art professionals who used photography, x-ray and other imaging techniques.
