The first Cameron's Toy Store was located on Fulton Street just south of the J.C. Penny store. Later a second store was opened in the Tower District on Olive just west of Broadway and the Carnation Ice Cream Parlor. I don't know if this store in the Tower District was only open for the Christmas sale or if it stayed open for several years.

My Grandmother had an insurance business in Fresno originally called Drenth and Drenth. As a child in the 1959's &'60's we traveled to Fresno most summers. If we were good, we got to pick a toy. I still have my Matchbox by Lesney Foden 8-axle Sugar Container truck, with $0.49 Cameron's price tag. Don"t see a way to post a picture.

You're right. Cameron Toy store was located just west of the old B of A building. I remember the interior being tired as well with chipped paint on the walls.

I think Cameron Toys was just west of the Bank of America on Tulare Street. I recall going in there in the late 60's. The place looked tired.

I actually found an old ad and photo of this place. I guess it was downtown. I have no idea when it opened or closed, though.

Does anyone remember a place called Cameron's Toys? I remember a reference from an old local TV commercial that also mentioned Arthur's, but I never knew where Cameron's was.
