Wanted: Urban Spirogaph
The Urban Spirograph was invented ca.1907 by Theodore Brown but it is named, at least in part, after the man who purchased the right to it from Brown, Charles Urban. Charles's company, Urban Motion Pictures Industries, Inc., began producing and selling the Spirograph in 1921. The company's offices were located in Irvington-on-Hudson, New York. The Spirograph's discs, which contained 1,200 frames, were set on the machine and, while turning the handle, the operator could view the film through a lens. Wow... isn't it simply gorgeous!
