Biographical Note

The Kodak No. 2 Bulls-Eye camera was introduced in 1892 by the Boston Camera Manufacturing Company as the first rollfilm camera with a red window as the exposure number indicator. Kodak later bought out the camera maker and manufactured the No. 2 Bulls-Eye cameras from 1895-1913. It was a referred to as a bicycle camera because it could be carried on a bicycle with a special case. It uses a simple spring-controlled rotary disc shutter and rotating disc stops controlled by pulling up a lever on top of the camera. The No. 2 Bulls-Eye was a wooden box camera designed to take 3.5 x 3.5 inch square images on 101 rollfilm.
