Ritz Photo Locations
State Street and North University in 1957 -- chrome postcard by Haight
Looking west on North U, from Thayer to State Street. The 1940 Kresge's building on the corner is now the location of the Nebraska Book Company's local outlet, Michigan Book & Supply. (Nebraska Book also owns Ulrich's Bookstore, on East University.) Kresge's building was erected on the former site of J.J. Quarry's drugstore; when that building was torn down, the drugstore moved across State Street and, under new ownership, became "The Quarry." In the 1950s The Quarry took over an adjoining storefront, which became a camera store called Quarry Photo. The wall between the two stores was opened up to link the operations.
In this photo, the Quarry stores are visible in the distance, next to the double storefront of Follett's Michigan Bookstore, which was part of a small (non-local) chain that also had stores on other college campuses. The Follett's location earlier had been Sheehan's bookstore, and Graham's, and now houses the Espresso Royale cafe. When The Quarry went out of business, the side was taken over by Decker Drugs, and the photo operation became Ritz Camera, which lasted at this location until June, 2009. An outlet of the 7-11 chain opened there in 2011. Decker Drugs closed several years ago, and the drugstore location is now occupied by a restaurant called Noodles & Co.

view from the rock ridge
This is the view from the western edge of St. Mary's Cemetery, which lies on top of the rocky ridge which I've always assumed gave Rockridge its name.
The fifty-foot cliff is directly below, continuing around the pond out of frame to the right, and then back into the frame in the upper right, where it provides the foundation to the California College of the Arts. Below the cliff and beyond the pond is Rockridge Shopping Center, on the corner of Broadway and Pleasant Valley. The three tall buildings in the back mark the location of Emeryville. In the far distance is Mt. Tamalpais and the Marin Headlands, with the Golden Gate Bridge on the left edge of the frame.
One benefit of pocket cameras I hadn't realized until I got one is that the lens is small enough to poke inside flowers and through chain link fences, as I did here. One disadvantage is the grip is precarious, and I was nervous about dropping it over the cliff into the pond below.
