Low Mfg. Co./Kalamazoo Shutter Co. (Kalamazoo, MI)

Low No. 6 Shutter - c. 1895

 

Catalogue No. IIII of Professional and Amateur Photographer's Supplies, Wm. F. Uhlman (St. Joseph, MO), c.1901, p. 25


Notes:

     The manufacturer of the Packard Ideal No. 6 Shutter was located in Kalamazoo, MI.  The manufacturer of the earlier, and very similar, Low Shutter No. 6 Shutter was also located in Kalamazoo, MI.  It is not a stretch to conclude that the Packard is essentially the Low, made by the successors of the Low company.
