The Traveler 120 is a simple box camera for 6x9cm images 120 film, made by Pho-Tak in Chicago, from 1948 and into the 1950s. One version appears to be named Time Traveler 120; however "time" actually labels the instant/time selector tab behind it. On examples with flash sync (labeled "Synchro Flash" around the lens), the selector for 1/50th second or Time is located at the top of the lens board.

A flash synchronized version was sold under the USC brand as the Vagabond 120. An identical camera branded Life Time 120 from "Life Time Mfg. Co. Inc., Chicago, Ill." also exists[1].
