Here are some links to pictures of five razors in a large collection I have but did not collect myself. The Flying Man & Mark Cross razors seem more obscure, I cannot find out much about them, the Ever Ready, Clemak & 7 O'clock seemed to me to be worth showing you.
I joked it was a right piece of trash ... but yes, it is made out of a light metal and not quite finished like others of the day. It did give a good shave, though. 1930s, I think.
The Ever Ready is a Streamline razor in what we call a clamshell case. I've seen that case with both 1912s and Micromatic Open Combs in ... I don't see why it would not have housed a Streamline in its day. I'm actually not sure myself ... again, 1930s, I think; perhaps a 1950s throwback.
The 7 O'Clock is a smashing razor. Circa 1912. It will take a de-spined GEM blade so long as a little extra work is done on the razor to crack off part of the sides. I really like mine.
As for the others, I've not seen them before but a cursory glance suggests that they would take proprietary blades which would make using them difficult, unless modern blades can be hacked to fit.
Of the bunch, the Ever Ready is probably of most interest, followed by the 7 O'Clock and then the rest.
