How Midwest got it's start:
Melvin, a young American Soldier during WWII in the Army Pictorial
Service had his Graflex camera break down. Knowing
it would take months to get it back from service he decided to take it apart and
repair it himself. Soon others in Pictorial Service
and other soldiers started to bring their broken
photographic equipment to him for service. After
his return he would take this knowledge home to his fathers camera store.
He then trained his younger brother Raymond on what he had taught himself and Midwest Camera Repair
was born. It would not be until 1957
that the brother's would officially take the name Midwest Camera Repair, but our roots started in
Italy in the 1940ís. The brothers would go on to be two of the
founding fathers of the trade association NAPET (National Association of Photo
Equipment Technicians). Midwest would become one of the first Authorized
Kodak Service Centers.
and Christian his girl in
Italy, he would later bring home as his wife.
Before Midwest got it's start:
Why do we have an ad from a 1899 newspaper posted
for a company that sells and repairs farming implements and manufactures
delivery wagons? (see below ad for answer)
Notice the address of ď
116 Oak St.
near Cor of ThirdĒ. If you were
to Google this address you would find itís near the corner of First Street not
, thatís because the city changed the address in the 1920s.
is this ad important to us? Because 116
would go on to become
318 Oak St
. the now location of Midwest Camera
Repair, Inc. And Frederick C.
Engferhr is our Great Great Grandfather, our family has been in the repair
business for over 120 years in one form or another.
