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

Purr …

Purrr …
Sometimes, I like her calm, unwild,
gentle as a sleeping child,
and wonder as she lies, a fur ring,
curled upon my lap, unstirring –
Is it me or Tibbles purring?

©Ian Serraillier – excerpt from “MISS TIBBLES”

Cactus Plant

Although everyone has trepidation’s about growing cactus plants because of their prickly stems,

this cactus is soft. Odd, isn’t it?

The plant was a gift. I don’t know the name of it. If anyone does, please let me know.

It grow prolifically in the hot humid climate of Florida.

Cacti are native to arid regions.
