Chris Lydle opened the first Chris’ Camera Center in Pompton Lakes, New Jersey April 1st, 1974.

He and Thelma “retired” to Aiken, South Carolina in 1999. That same year they opened Chris’ Camera Center downtown in Aiken.

In 2016 Chris retired again and closed the retail store. He still continues a photo booth rental business (South Carolina Photobooths), takes a few photos for passport seekers, and provides projector bulbs for classic slide and movie projectors.
