Bilora was founded in 1909 in Barmen-Rittershausen Germany  as Kurbi & Niggeloh but didn’t start manufacturing cameras until 1935. The Bilora Bella 66 camera was introduced by the company when they opened their new manufacturing plant in Radevormwald /RHLD around 1956.

They introduced a number or models from the first “Box” to the “Bilomatic” until production stopped in 1975 although the company continued to manufacture other photographic equipment including tripods.  It was a moderately priced camera, (£4 6s 3d in 1957),  well-built from cast alloy with a variety of colours.
