Cameras were produced from 1935 in Radevormwald. From the first "Box" to the "Bilomatic" line and the fabrication stopped in 1975. Imagine, in 21 years there were more than one million cameras produced. In later years, the Bilora brand was used for camera accessories, particularly tripods.
The Bilora Stahl-Box camera was manufactured by the Kurbi & Niggeloh Company of Radevormwald/RHLD, Germany in circa 1952. This box camera is constructed of metal with an art deco etched face plate. It is capable of capturing 6 X 9 cm exposures on no. 120 roll film. It was fitted with a fixed focus Meniscus lens and a simple B & M shutter with two settings of I for instant plus B for bulb. It also has two brilliant viewfinders for portrait and landscape. A flash attachment could be fitted using the double hole receptacle on the top. The camera measures 4 1/2 x 3 /18 x 4 1/2 inches. The Stahl Box camera is also known by the name Wardette made by Bilora for Montgomery Ward.
