Reub’s Camera –

 As I recall in the 60’s and 70’s the best known camera shop in Minot was Reub’s Camera. During the 1961 Jubilee Event, Reub’s was located on 1st Avenue SW, ½ block east of the Post Office…. The Post Office at that time was located in what is now known as the Federal Building. Polaroid Cameras were the big thing at that time. Pictures in 10 seconds. New Polaroid cameras were available from $74.00 to $139.00. Reub’s Jubilee special was a Wollensak Movie Kit for $299.95. This consisted of an 8mm camera with a zoom lens, a projector, a 30x40 inch screen, carrying case and a 2 year supply of black and white movie film. Eventually Reub’s moved to the corner of 2nd Avenue and Main Street
