I walked past the shop this morning, and it was all shuttered up. There is a note in the window written by his son, Doug, that that Gord McArhur has a surprise stroke and passed away last week.
I never actually needed his services, but it was always nice to know that there was a person still with a store front fixing cameras. And hea lways had such intersting stuff in the windows.
I guess there is still International Camera Repair out on the Queensway, in Etobicoke, but the last time I was in his shop last winter he was trying to sell the business or its inventory, and move his repair work back into his basement. The sad part about selling the inventory, is that it is trying to support the rent, and is accordingly generally overpriced to what is otherwise findable online.
