The Boston Camera Manufacturing Company
was founded by Samuel N. Turner. He applied for a patent on rolls of paper-backed film in 1892 and received it in 1895. He developed the Bulls Eye
box cameras with integrated rollfilm holder and red bulls eye
as means of exposure counting. The cameras were even sold in Europe through the London office of Blair
, another Boston camera maker. Both camera makers were bought by Kodak
in the 1890s.
