Historical information

The photographic envelopers were used to develop plates, films and lantern slides. They had to be mixed as per instructions on the packet. These may have been used by an individual or by a local school or organisation.


Wilma Davies, a long term resident of the Kiewa Valley donated this photographic equipment.
