Spiratone was an American distributor, founded by Fred Spira in 1941.[1] The company had a store on West 27th Street, N.Y., which was opened in 1946.[1] It distributed lenses and all sorts of camera and darkroom accessories. It closed its doors in 1990.

As a kid my father would take me too camera row. We would do Minifilm, Wiloughby's, Camera Barn, Olden and Spiratone. Some of the fondest memories I have of NYC in early 1960's.  Don@eastwestphoto.[1]
