No. 2 Eureka Junior (1898)

The No. 2 Eureka Junior is the most simple of the Eureka line and I dare say it is the most simple Kodak ever made (not counting the do-it-yourself pinhole camera kit of around 1930).

It takes pictures of 3.5 x 3.5 inch (9 x 9 cm) on glass plates in single holders. There is no door in the back, but a slit through which you could slide in the holder.
The lens is fixed focus and the rotating shutter has one speed. By pulling out a small tab you could take time exposures.
There are even three apertures on a pull out strip.

For this instrument the snapshooting photographist had to pay $ 2.50.

During its brief time of production (1898-1899) 10,000 were made.
