Spartus Press Camera

Introduced as the Spartus Press Flash and Falcon-Abbey Electricamera by the Utility Manufacturing Company in New York, this was the first camera with built-in flash reflector. The Abbey branding may relate to another New York company, Abbey Photo Corp., who sold flash synchronizers. It used old-style Edison screw-base flash bulbs, and 120 film rolls for exposures 2¼×3¼”. It had two exposure settings, one for “bright” light and one for “cloudy & flash” situations. The body was a ribbed bakelite mouldings. information: wikipedia

Clix 120 Elite Camera

The Clix 120 Elite camera was sold by the Metropolitan Industries company of Chicago Illinois, in circa 1930. It was a simple box camera constructed of metal with a decorative faceplate, fitted with a simple meniscus lens and instantaneous shutter. It featured a pair of brilliant finders. This camera captured 6 x 9 cm sized exposures on number 120 roll film. The Clix “120” was a simple box camera from Metropolitan Industries, for 6×9 cm images on (unsurprisingly) 120 film. Above the shutter release is a slider for choosing between f/16 and f/22; and the shutter has the typical Time/Instant selector. This is apparently just a styling variation on the basic Metropolitan box camera. information:historic camera

    • These cameras were in an antique shop. The shop was the size of a football field with rooms and cubbies everywhere. I almost missed them because the shop was filled with things everywhere. I plan to go back. It was a time travel shop.😎
