One of the many similar box cameras from Metropolitan Industries of Chicago, Illinois, the Capitol "120" exposes 6x9 images onto 120 film. It is much like Metropolitan's Clix, Clix Elite, Crest, Pal Jr., and Rival Elite "120" models.
Versions with white or black front panels are known. The Capitol has a single fixed aperture, while some other Metropolitan box cameras offered a slider to select between two f-stop choices.
