Thanks for the memories guys! I thought they were gone when I was in SF in 2006. There was some discount camera shop on the other side of Maiden Lane at the time. I wasn't a salesman. I worked below ground in the basement doing various jobs. I did emerge once in time to see Jerry Lewis hanging around. Sigh, it was a San Francisco that seemed long gone when I was last there. No more Herb Caen in the Chronicle and the pace of life seemed much more frenzied. Maybe it is those rose coloured glasses.
