The Original Kodak was introduced in 1888.  It was the first camera to use roll film.  The film was loaded into the camera at the factory providing up to sixty 2½ inch diameter circular images.  The cicular images are an identifing feature of the Original, No. 1 and the No. 2 camera images.

The photo below is of a reproduction of the Original Kodak.  Five thousand reproductions were produced by Eastman Kodak in England in 1988 to commemorate the company's one hundredth anniversary.
