The No. 1A Pocket Kodak, Series II Camera was manufactured by the Eastman Kodak company from 1923 to 1931. Capable of taking twelve exposures, 2 1/4 x 4 1/4 inches on No. 116 roll film without reloading. Designed with a simple self-erecting front and bed for quick set up. Various lens plus shutter options were available including a fixed focus, Meniscus achromatic lens and Kodex shutter that sold for $17.00 in black, an adjustable Focus with a Kodar f7.9 131mm lens and Kodex shutter that sold for $21.00, and a Kodak Anastigmat f7.7 lens and a Kodak Diomatic shutter that originally sold for $26.00. All versions were constructed of aluminum with some steal parts where needed and covered in black pin-grain cowhide, with the hardware finished in nickel coating or black enameled. Features included an autographic feature, brilliant reversible finder, and two tripod sockets. The autographic feature required special film that had a carbon strip that lined up with the window that slid opened on the back of the camera. The user could then write what they like in the limited space (1/4”x 2 ¾”). This film in all sizes launched in 1914 and was never very popular so Kodak discontinued manufacturing in 1932.
