Bilora Boy

This little box exists in red-brown or black version. Although visibly made ??from 1950, its plump line and its material, the bakelite, are quite characteristic of the Stream-Line pre-war style. It is a complete break with the forms of other cameras from contemporary brand. Would it be a prewar project which had no time enough to be achieved?

 It is a fixed-focus item, with single speed instant exposure and bulb exposure.
 Its viewfinder is very small and rather impractical.
 Its variations "under license" from Chile are interesting.
