Chronology of cameras Sears 
History of the brand Sears New window

Traduction de Sylvain Halgand.

This camera have the mark Happi Time. It is indicated that it is about “Our own Trademark” of the distributer “Sears”. Under this mark, one can also find radios, toys, etc.Obviously, it is not Sears which manufactured these objects.
This camera seems to be the same one as the Donald Duck, also manufactured by Herbert George.

The Sears Distributer exists since 1886 in Chicago. Since all this time (until 1993), the Sears catalog punctuated the American rural life, as in its time, did it on our premises Manufrance.
