We do not possess any information about the life of this artist. His artistic production, created between 1911 and 1934, represents the plans of machines or everyday life objects based on the principle of self-propulsion (self-propelled motors, self-propelled trash cans, self-propelled scales, self-propelled finger-lifter, etc.). The triumphs of industrial development in the beginning of the 20th century were, without any doubt, the source of inspiration for those who have been called "crazy inventors". L.C. Spooner signed his drawings as "L.C. Spooner Inventor". In the folds of his drawings-plans, glued to the pages of a large advertising catalogue devoted to fashion, he "hid" his explanatory patents. Sometimes he even attached them with pins or safety pins. Originally, all his drawings were glued to the large catalogue. In 1998, the catalogue was in perfect state at an art dealer’s from Chicago. Few years later, another dealer showed each page as a separate drawing, cut out from the binding and put on sale individually. In the upper part of some of the drawings-pages we can read : “P.B. Spooner. DRUGS, JEWELERY, BOOKS STATIONERY, PAINTS, WALL, PAPER, SHADES, DRUGGIST SUNDRIES- PALMYRA, ILL.” This inscription seems to indicate that Spooner’s family owned a drugstore. Some of the references on the drawings suggest that L.C. Spooner might have lived in or around the towns of Decatur, Palmyra, and Blue Moon in Illinois.
