Notes: The Economic,
Elm City and Leader cameras are advertised on
the American Annual of Photography and Photographic Times
Almanac for 1897 "Bargain Page" only, which says
"First quality American Optical's Cameras" (but some are made by Scovill rather
than American Optical).
This "Bargain Page" seems to be the last reference for a number of models, which
implies 1) that Scovill & Adams discontinued a number of models around 1896, and
2) that the "Bargain Page" was an outlet for the left-over stock of these
American Annual of Photography and Photographic Times Almanac for 1897,
