History Lesson: The Eighties and The Big Move!

The 1980s was a decade of great social, economical and technological advancement. It was during this decade that Leonard’s Photography made the “Big Move” from our humble St. George Street location to our present location on San Marco! For a short time Leonard’s continued to utilize the St. George location for film processing until it was eventually moved over permanently in 1983.


At this point, we were still bagging all of our photos by hand. It was an extremely tedious process that required the use of many employees. Leonard’s was operating almost twenty-four hours a day with second and third shifts. A few of our wonderful team members up in the lab began working for Leonard’s during this time. Susan Winman, the Photographic Lab Supervisor, began during the Big Move. She was brought on to help Linda with film processing at the St. George location!


Here are a few photos from the eighties!
