British photographic history

Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history

Kodak Alaris has announced that it is likely to close it's Harrow site by the end of the year. The site - Kodak's first manufacturing plant outside of Rochester - was purchased in 1890 and started operations in 1891. Since the 1980s the site has been gradually been reduced as the business has contracted and today only makes colour photographic paper.

Much of the site has been sold for light industrial units and housing.
