Black and white photograph featuring the exterior of Building 10, Security & Medical, at the Kodak Australasia Pty Ltd factory, Coburg, circa 1960s.

Building 10 contained a medical centre with a full-time doctor physician and three nursing sisters and a part-time physiotherapist. It also housed the personnel centre which included payroll, recruitment and other staff relations, and a small purchasing section supporting the factory.

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.

This photograph is part of the Kodak collection of products, promotional materials, photographs and working life artefacts collected from Kodak Australasia in 2005 after the manufacturing plant at Coburg had closed down the year before.
