My Wife (she wrote the story) just informed me of the demise of Century Camera in Royal Oak, Michigan. One of the last few places from the golden photographic years here in the Detroit area. I remember shooters stacked at the counters waiting for service. You even used to have to take a number. Ahh..... ch-ch-ch-cha- changes.... only 2 to go. Heading out to "pick the bones" tomorrow.
I stopped by there yesterday, Bill. There doesn't seem to be a lot of bones left to pick. In recent times, their strengh was in the lighting equipment and its going fast. There still seems to be a selection of aftermarket lenses for 35mm and some cases.
