The JEM Jr. camera was manufactured in circa 1940s by the J.E. Mergott company of Newark, New Jersey. It is similar to the original JEM jr., except that it had a synchronized flash capability. Designed as a simple snap shot camera it was capable of capturing eight 6 x 9 cm exposures on number 120 roll film. It was entirely made of sheet metal held together with rivets, spot weld, or press fit. This camera featured a fixed focus f16 meniscus lens, a simple shutter providing timed and snap-shot exposures at a single speed of 1/25th of a second, two large view finders and an easily removed front cover for lens cleaning. This model sold for approximately $6.67 complete with flash unit.
