Campkins no more

Campkins, 1 Rose Crescent, CambridgeCampkins Camera Centre at 1 Rose Crescent, Cambridge, has closed and is being consolidated with the shop at 12a King’s Parade. The sad demise of what looked and felt like a traditional camera dealer’s shop, an echo of its predecessor at 15 King’s Parade, a photographic cabinet of curiosities where I bought my first serious (?) camera, a Baldi 29, in about 1965.
