For years I've often mentioned the family caemra shop and have been searching for some of my photos form those days. At last, the first installment. Our family business, F.J. Gammill Photography (later shortened to Gammill Photo & Camera), opened for business in the fall of 1974. My dad, the founder, and owner, had been doing portrait and wedding photography since the mid-1950's decided it was time to open a business. While maintaining his postion as composing room foreman at the local newspaper he opened for business in a narrow building once used for Selective Service registration. I worked afternoons during my senior year in high school and continued to work after starting college. Initially, we only did portraits and copied old photographs, but quickly got hooked up with Berkey Marketing so we were able to carry Konica, Sunpak, Tamron, and Omega products. The first image shows our storefront around 1976 or 1977. I don't remember which camera I used, but pretty sure it was a Konica since the negatives have that distinctive notch at the edge of the frame that most Konicas (SLR and RF) seem to have.
