Toronto. In the late 1930s, a Chicago man embarked on a program to create inexpensive cameras and the Spartus Camera Corporation was born. One of the many cameras to emerge was a bakelite wonder that sold under a variety of names.
If you happen to visit our Fairs, Trunk Sales, or Auctions, you are sure to come across a camera made by Spartus Corp. in Chicago.
Thanks to my friend George Dunbar for the idea and to the “Made in Chicago Museum” for the gory details of the creator of Spartus and many other inexpensive articles.
