Leaflet - 'Free Repairs to Your Kodak or Brownie', 1938 Object Reg. No: HT 19963

Colour leaflet advertising 'Free repairs to your Kodak or Brownie during the month of September' to celebrate the 1938 Jubilee of Kodak's first camera, which had been released in September 1888. The leaflet also announces that it will exchange 25 new Kodak cameras for the 25 oldest Kodak cameras in Australia, and asks customers to take their 'veteran' Kodak cameras to a Kodak branch or dealer to check the serial number before December 31st 1938.

The leaflet is held in a scrapbook compiled by Kodak Australasia. The scrapbook contains 37 colour, and black and white promotional leaflets, posters, stickers, negative and print envelopes, postal packaging for the Australian Photographic Review magazine, and trade circulars produced before World War Two. The leaflets promote point of sale, merchandising and advertising material, sales campaigns and sales tips for Kodak dealers. They also promote specific Kodak products such as film and cameras, processing services, as well as advertising the Kodak International Salon of Photography. In addition, various leaflets promote photographic competitions and celebration sales for Australia's 150th anniversary celebrations.

This leaflet is part of the Kodak collection of products, promotional materials and working life artefacts from the Kodak factories in Melbourne. This collection dates from the late 19th century to the early 21st century and was acquired in 2005 when the Kodak Australasia Pty Ltd factory in Coburg closed down.
Single sided colour leaflet, printed in red, black and white. An illustration of a Kodak folding camera and a calendar illustrate the leaflet. It is pasted in flat onto a page of Kodak Scrapbook HT 19942.
