    In a couple of episodes I've been watching lately where 'ole Jack begins with his "This Is The City...." , you could spot out at the top and out of the corner a "amera...." letters on what appears to what must've been a major camera & photography shop somewhere Downtown. Might anyone here (there?) know what shop that was - and of course, if it still is?

    I'll take a wild guess that it may have been Henry's Camera in downtown Los Angeles. Not sure where it was - maybe near 7th & Olive -- it's been over 45 years since I was there.

    I haven't seen the episodes - so let us know what they are.

    Franks, on Figueroa in Highland Park?

    I haven’t knowingly seen that episode of Dragnet either.
