Chronology of cameras National Silver 

Traduction de Sylvain Halgand.


For once, in the case of Candid Camera, it does not have there a reference in Chicago. However, the resemblance to other cameras manufactured in this city is undeniable. The mention of the towns of New York and Los Angeles added in the name of a company pushes me to believe that it is about a promotional camera for this company, therefore manufactured by someone else…
While seeking on Internet, National Silver Company proves to be a distributer or a manufacturer of silver cutleries. Admittedly, so a long time after the manufacture of the camera, the name can be taken again by another company.
Then which could manufacture it? Around the lens, there is the inscription “Elgin Precision”. The manufacturer is thus the same one as that of Elgin. Bingo, Elgin Laboratories were in… Chicago.
