As is so often the case, I was tootling along on another forum and started to go seriously off topic as I remembered the camera store where I bought my first serious camera in 1959-60. I stopped and thought I'd better wander on back here where I might be appreciated... It was a Heiland Pentax H2, and I got it at the A-Smile-A-Minute Camera store in Salina, Kansas. It was a fondly remembered local store located at 119 South Santa Fe. The last trace I can find of them is a small business loan in 1984, but long after that, when I went back to visit family in Ks, the store stood closed, but with all its stock, everything, still sitting there, including window displays and everything. Then, sadly, a few years ago when I went back the store was empty. Alas (sob), I have no pictures, but the one below was taken looking north from near the store. Do the rest of you have memories of such old-fashioned, full-service stores? Maybe even pictures?
