    Chromoptics by Jay Reed...

    Hi, all -

    There's a tag inside my new Rolleiflex Automat - "Chromoptics by Jay Reed, Chicago". I'm assuming this was a store at some point, but google fails me. Anyone know for sure?

    That was mean.
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    Such lens-assembly trade-mark makes me rather think of a manufacturer or an optical workshop rather than a shop.

    Boy, that's not much to go on. Thanks for the link, though.

    CHICAGO'S Largest Camera Trading Center ! Open evenings ! Better deals ! New-Used ! Mailorder (sic) satisfaction ! Chromoptics, 943 North State, Chicago 10.
    Apparently a camera store, they ran ads in Popular photography in the 50's (this one's from Oct. 1956); you can google that. Looks like that address is now a Walgreens.

    Somestimes there is precious little information, even on this monster we call the internet. In the 1970's there was a camera store in Chicago called Wolk's, they had, at one time 3 locations in the loop. Now long out of business and no trace that I can find that they ever were. I believe the founder/owner was named Mike Wolk.

    Depends on just how strange the dogs are. Cujo level would be good.
