“End of Employee Meeting, West Parking Lot, Last Day of Manufacturing Operations, Kodak Canada, Toronto June 29, 2005”
"In 2003, the sales of digital cameras worldwide surpassed those of film cameras for the first time. By April 2004, after a dramatic decline in film sales, Eastman Kodak was delisted from the Dow Jones Industrials, a position the company had held for 74 years. ... The next steps were wider-reaching: the multinationa began closing down its numerous manufacturing complexes on four continents, and laying off tens of thousands of employees. On December 9, 2004, Kodak Canada held a meeting with its employees to inform them that the plant would be closed, decommissioned, and demolished in a matter of months. On the last day of manufacturing, June 29, 2005, the workers met in the West Parking Lot to have a group photo taken. After a photographer in a helicopter hovering above the site had captured the image, they picked up gift bags filled with Kodak products, and went home."
