Photolux was Gossen's first model. The first ad I have seen was published in Photofreund magazine March 20th in 1933. Photolux is a surprisingly compact meter. But to allow enough light for the cell, Gossen had to attach a thick convex lens to collect light rays, which made the measuring angle bigger, than would have been optimal for photography.

Photolux was in production until september 1933.

Mine comes from Lauda-Königshofen, Germany, in excellent condition, and with a worn-out leather case.
