Chronology of cameras Central Camera Co 

Traduction de Manuel M

Centaur is the name given by Central Camera to a series of camera sold by itself. These cameras are, according to the illustrations of the catalogues, some Wirgin Auta. Just like the model of origin, Centaur is declined in several combinations of lenses  and shutters.

From Central Camera Co's website :

Albert Flesch left his native Hungary to come to Chicago alone when he was 13. Albert carried not only much of his family's hopes, but he also carried a small red diary with him on the trip. In his diary, he tells of buying a new winter coat and visiting relatives on the day of his departure. He describes the life on board ship and his arrival in Chicago, where he went to live with an uncle.
Years later, Albert Flesch started his work career in the camera department of Siegel-Cooper, one of the large downtown department stores of its day.

With this initiation to photography, he opened Central Camera in a storefront at 31 E. Adams St. in 1899.

The year of Central Camera's founding marked the 60th anniversary of the invention of photography. Albert Flesch offered the innovative service of commercial developing and print processing at his store in 1900 and also introduced a mail-order catalogue.

Central Camera prospered and, after a move to another location on Wabash Avenue, settled in 1929 at its present location.
