After 32 years serving the neighborhood’s shutterbugs, Capitol Hill’s 60 Minute Photo has developed its last pictures. The “Junk Be Gone” truck arrived Friday morning to begin cleaning things out following the shop’s shuttering with the end of November. Another photo-centric entity has emerged, however, to help local photographers out. Details on a new option for printing your photos — and an annual rummage sale shutterbugs will probably be into — are below.
Here’s a timely announcement from 12th Ave nonprofit Photo Center NW:
No more trips to the drug store, the Photo Center is very excited to announce that we have opened up our printing service to the general public! The process is very simple: choose your favorite photos, send them to us, and we make you beautiful prints for you. Because we are professional lab, we can accommodate different shapes and sizes (hint: Instagram!).
You can learn more about the service and pricing here.
The Photo Center is also gearing up to hold its annual rummage sale:
It’s here! Remember the madness last year? Our annual Photo Center Rummage Sale is back and you might just find what you were looking for. Join us on Sunday, December 16th, 12-7PM. Please note that the 12-2pm slot is open to students and members only, so if you want first dibs on all the great stuff consider becoming a member or signing up for a class!!
Students and members only? What about members of the bootstrapped new media?
The future 14th Ave. More on the development here
Meanwhile, 60 Minute’s stretch of 14th Ave awaits a planned demolition, preservation and development effort that will create a seven-story, 100-unit apartment building on the site. We’re sure it will be extremely photogenic.
