Clix Camera Retro Image

The retro image for this week is a Bakelite viewfinder camera and its original cardboard box. This Clix De Luxe camera was manufactured in 1950 by Metropolitan Industries of Chicago, Illinois. It was a small point-and-click camera that came without a flash. It was inexpensive and miniature in size, making it a fun little camera. The art deco style lettering on the lens is great, as well as the box that has also survived.

Dimensions: 5”L x 2 ¼”W x 2 ½”H

Manufactured by:
Metropolitan Industries
Chicago, Illinois

Here at we are surrounded by all things retro. Not only the things we sell but original items and collections that decorate our offices. We thought it might be interesting each week to bring you a photo and information of an interesting, and maybe unusual, retro item we have kicking around. Please note these items are not for sale.
