Default Classic Camera shop

Has anyone ever used a shop called Sepia memories? They are based in Morcambe, Lancashire. Apart from their wedding and portrait business they have had a showcase of classic cameras which only rarely appear on the market and at the same time didn't charge the earth for them.

I have had a few lenses from them in the past to fit my Minolta manual cameras.

They appear to either have discontinued this side of the business, although their website is still apparently alive. Has anyone any idea if they are still functioning?

Just tried a load of various links for them given by a search page and none of them turned out to be live. Unless you live local John, and can check them out by visiting, I would presume them closed.

Google Earth shows a live-looking business in Street View: maybe try 01524 425508

Default Sepia Memories

I tried ringing them yesterday and today and the 'phone just rings. There is a mobile number and this just goes to unavailable.

So I think we must assume that they have closed.

Google street view is pretty useless as it is not real time. The images can be as much as 4 years plus, out of date when they were in full operation.
