Have you ever had a connection from a distance with something for years...then finally came face to face with it?
In 1976 I bought my first bit of professional Camera equipment from 47th street photo in New York City. Year after year I would add to my collection from 47th street photo. I always wanted to visit the store if I ever made it to New York City. I had visions of a huge camera complex with everything imaginable a photographer could want.
Years later when I began my trips to the City...one of the first places I visited was 47th Street Photo. It was great to make that connection with a store that I had so often visited in my mind. They did in fact have everything one could want in the line of photo and video equipment but I was so surprised to see that it was just a one room single story shop but it indeed was filled to the ceiling with equipment.
I can recall my Grandfather talk of receiving the Sears and Roebuck Catalog in the mail each year and how excited they were to get it. They could look through it's pages and order things that they would never have the chance to have in the rural Midwest in the early 1900s. I guess this was my "Sears Catalog".
Looking at the picture above...to the right you will see the red neon "Digital" sign. Welcome to 47th Street Photo.
