Toronto Camera on Church

Toronto. My first visit to Toronto Camera was in 1960 when they were on Church Street. I remember buying a Hansa Enlarger and Braun slide projector plus some chemicals and paper. I also picked up a copy of their July 1960 news letter touting how to choose binoculars – and they just happened to have a sale on Binoculars.

This was the major store for cameras at the time. Henry’s was an upstart but when they bought out a camera store in Chicago, they immediately became a power house later adding branches throughout Ontario. Toronto Camera later moved to a multi story store on Yonge Street which I visited many times, especially when I moved to Toronto or visited the city.
