Chronology of cameras Utility Mfg 

Traduction de Sylvain Halgand.

This is a Candid-Type.
It was manufactured post-war period in Chicago, Ill.. Moreover, it has the Graf lens which one finds on the majority of the bottom-of-the-range cameras said Candid manufactured in Chicago, at that time. All leaves believe that only one company manufactured these cameras for a whole of mark. In the case of Utility Mfg. Co., the cameras are sometimes marked Chicago, sometimes New York (is the state or the city?), whereas they are obviously of the same origin.

As much of its similar, this camera is stuffed defects (deformation of material) and is undoubtedly unusable because of the escapes of light.
