Black's Was Photography

Black's (now stylized as BLACKS) was founded in 1930 with a store in Toronto on St. Clair Ave. Yesterday it was announced that the last 59 stores will be closed for good on August 8.

The digital revolution has most of us taking photos with our phones (count me in that group) and few of us printing pictures. Nobody is surprised by this news, but it's still sad to see it go. Black's was photography.

Did you spot a young Keanu Reeves in that 1986 ad? Big thanks to Retrontario for the tip!
