Little Village magazine issue 239: Mar. 21 – Apr. 3, 2018

Flip through the pages of Little Village magazine issue 239. In this edition, LV takes a look at the story behind soon-to-close University Camera, the last Iowa City retailer of its kind. Also inside: Columnist Kembrew McLeod lists his can’t-miss shows from the upcoming Mission Creek Festival (April 3-8), LV talks with UI students about the power of hip hop and their upcoming 2018 Walk It Out Multicultural Fashion Show, and one of our favorite foodies pays a visit to The Map Room in Cedar Rapids to see if their burgers are truly up to snuff.

  1. Roger Christian bought University Camera three months before we opened the first on-site lab in Meridian MS. He has been a mentor and friend for several decades. Our imaging histories and our city’s growing pains have many similarities. My husband and I are 80 and 79 respectively and still work 60 hours a week with no employees. Is there any way I can get a copy of your excellent article on University Camera? It will go in our scrapbook of 34 years of special memories of friends and events that our children will discard some day, but I will enjoy it for awhile.
