Part of a group of images contained in a yellow envelope that relate to Dr Fisher. Some of these images were taken at separate events during the 1990s and others are copy images of a group of women taken in 1952.

Dr Fisher, an industrial chemist who had worked at Kodak Limited in Harrow, Britain, immigrated to Australia to work at Kodak Australasia as Manager of the Sensitizing Laboratory (Emulsion Laboratory), where she was employed from 1939 until 1962. She was a significant contributor to Kodak Australasia's manufacturing success.

These images complement the Kodak Heritage Collection of products, promotional materials, photographs and working life artefacts collected from Kodak Australasia in 2005, when the Melbourne manufacturing plant at Coburg closed down.

Kodak Australasia Pty Ltd 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.
