Keystone Manufacturing Company was founded in 1919 to produce moving picture machines. In 1924, Keystone also started to make pressed steel toys, for which it is best known. If you find it strange that the same company makes both cameras and toys, so did the company. In 1954, the company would split again forming the Keystone Camera Company and Keystone Manufacturing Company, which continued to produce the pressed steel toys.
