Zenith Camera Corp Sharpshooter

Traduction de Manuel M

This box is out of metal and is very unpleasant to handle when the weather is cold… in Chicago.

It is about a metal rather thin covered on the front part of a painting of aluminium colour, and on the back part of a frosted painting.
There is no originality, if it is not the hardness of handling (selection between the instantaneous and pose) and the noise (cling) of the release.

Would a factory of Corned beef boxes have been recycled in Chicago, post-war period ?

In the annual edition of 1950 of Popular Photography, the named manufacturer is Phot-Tak.
