Some very sad news from our friends at E.P. Levine

219 Bear Hill Road, Waltham MA 02451 (617)951-1499

To all of our current and past customers, near and far,
the owners of EP Levine,
Jay Callum and Michael Bard,
announce the closing of our business.

This is done with much sadness, as EP Levine, in one iteration or another, has been a fixture in the Boston and New England photographic community since 1959.
When Jay & Mike took over from Steve Brettler in 2007, there was much hope for the future.  Indeed, growth was excellent until the financial crisis of 2008 struck us all in the fall of that year.  With that event, an unstoppable series of changes to the photographic industry was set in motion.  Brick and mortar locations with qualified, knowledgeable staff and a reputation for providing top notch service and advice, ironically became the hardest hit.  The digital revolution that had so changed photography had spread to every business and means of doing business.  Value and service became secondary to price, even if it was only a few dollars, instant gratification and low priced, low quality, imported goods.
After struggling through this past winter and without the bounce back we had hoped for in the spring and summer, we have come to the realization that continuing is no longer possible.

Commencing immediately, we will be holding a clearance sale
that will run until Saturday, October 3rd.

Discounts will range from 10% to 40% and, in some cases offers will be entertained.  This will be the time for the best selection and quantities.

DON’T WAIT UNTIL THE END WHEN ALL THE GOOD STUFF IS GONE!
EVERYTHING MUST GO; USED, NEW, GEAR AND SUPPLIES.

Stereographica Auction ends September 12

auctionintro
We are quite late in publishing a link to this on-line auction, but the group, Stereographica, the site and the auction are all well worth exploring. There is much more to them than stereo images. Located in Valatie, New York, Bryan & Page Ginns have been collecting and dealing in fine antique and collectible photography since 1985, actively buying and selling to collectors world wide. They are active PHSNE members.
