Moler's Camera in Wichita



The best job I ever had was working here in the '80s. My pals Bob and Penny Moler still run the place pretty much the way they ran it when I was here. This is old school retailing, and Bob's collection of old cameras and projectors gives it the feel of a roadside museum. Above is a general view of the store, and at left is a movie projector from 1913, rescued from a movie theater in Douglass, Kansas, that burned down in the fifties.

  1. Dude, I know Moler's. I bought my wedding album there and had the pictures printed at Douglas Black & White.

  2. Beautiful banner at your site as well, I am reminded of some wall paintings by the Mexican artist, Diego Rivera, such as this one http://EN.WahooArt.com/A55A04/w.nsf/OPRA/BRUE-8BWNY4. You browse more murals of his at wahooart.com.
