Eastman Kodak Co., (Rochester, NY)

The Kodak No. 2 - c. 1889



No. 2 - 4 x 5


Notes: The Kodak No. 2 is a 4x5 Kodak early enough to have a string-actuated shutter (the string is broken, as usual) and taking round photographs.  At this period, the long roll of film was removed in the darkroom at the Kodak factories, and the images were all mounted and returned to the owner with the camera factory-loaded with fresh film.  Examples of its photos are included here.
