Packet of non-halation orthochromatic plates, formerly called 'Pelloid' plates, made by Eastman Kodak Ltd of Rochester, New York. These plates are described in a contemporary advertisement as light, convenient and non-breakable; 'The Perfect Substitute for Glass. Kodoid plates consist of non-curling cut film, mounted by means of metal clips on black cardboard. Before development they are handled precisely like glass plates.'
