The Bilora Boy camera was manufactured by the Kurbi & Niggeloh Company ( Bilora ) of Radevormwald/RHLD, Germany from 1949 to approximately 1960. A few variations were made over this time period. This small camera was made of plastic bakelite with rounded edges and a built-in direct view finder. It was capable of capturing 4 x 6.5 cm exposures on no. 127 roll film. It was fitted with a fixed focus Meniscus f11 lens and a shutter with a single speed of approximately 1/30 of a second and time. In 1950 the firm came out with a red body version called the Boy Luxus which also featured a coated lens. In 1955 a slightly larger version was made with red bakelite and in a 6 x 6 cm size.
