After 96 years, Kodak Australia, which began in 1908 after it merged with the Melbourne photographic firm Baker and Rouse, closed its manufacturing plant in Melbourne. This was the end of silver-halide-based photographic production in Australia. After the closure of the site, Museum Victoria collected items pertaining to the manufacture of photographic materials and the history of Baker and Rouse and Kodak Australia. The museum now has a comprehensive collection regarding the history of photographic manufacture in Australia, its social history, technological changes in photography from 1886 to 2004, and Australia’s role in the history of photography.
