Henry’s on Queen West in the big smoke c1945

Toronto. A popular camera chain, Henry’s, began here in Toronto over a century ago.

This May, the chain announced it would be closing a number of stores as it restructured. Then Henry’s head, Andy Stein, spoke with us back in October, 2009.

When the closures were announced, author, photographer, occasional PHSC member (and speaker), Mike Filey wrote this column in the Toronto Sun.

I spent many delightful hours in their old store just south of Queen as I changed and augmented my collection at the time. Thanks to our editor Bob Lansdale for sending on the info from member Jim Hall of Guelph. I had heard the announcement on the TV news, but forgot to put it in a post.
