Irwin Lark

Traduction de Sylvain Halgand

This type of camera, typically American, is called “sardin can”. With looking at it, one understands easily why.
Nonglad to resemble a box of sardins, this camera on its arrival at the house, oozed of oil. No the olive, but of mineral oil. Its salesman agreeing to make, had lubricated the shutter… massively.
Fortunately, it is not necessary to have a sardine key to change the film. A simple screw retains the back of the camera, metal as all the remainder. The body of the camera is parkerized and on the front face, a striped decorative plate is riveted.
We thus have there, the equivalent of standard Candid, usually out of bakelite, metal. Moreover, “ Candid type” is registered beside the lens.
The firm Irwin Corp. although New-Yorker, could have bonds with the companies of Chicago which manufactured bakelite Candid. Moreover, the name “Lark” will be taken again later on by Herbert George.
