Central Fish Chinatown

~
Do you remember the Country Boys Market with its wooden floors? Walter Smiths was the place to go for clothes on the Fulton Mall. Penny Candy had great blacklight posters and don't forget Whitie's Pet Store on Blackstone. What vintage retail do you remember growing up in Fresno?

Central Fish Chinatown

Post by galactustrilogy » Wed May 09, 2018 9:14 pm

I'm looking for photos from Central Fish in Chinatown, from the 1950s to 1970s timeframe. I have photos of the new location. It's for a story about my recollections of working there in 1973- and 74. Please contact me if you can help me out! I've checked with the Fresno Bee but they are unable to locate any. Nothing at the Heritage Center at the main County Library, and nothing at the Fresno Historic Society. Thanks in Advance!

Hello there from Lost Fresno. I guess the Bee missed this article for you.

Another shot of Central Fish during its hay day. Looks like they were during very good business and the banners above leave no doubt about it being located in Fresno's China Town on 1507 Kern Street.

Do you have a high resolution scan of this, or other photos from the old Central Fish? Something around 5x7" at 600 to 1200 dpi? Been trying to find high quality images to no avail. Sure would appreciate it, but no worries if you cannot. Mucho thanks Lost Fresno! I presume you can contact me privately if that is the best way to do this. My story about Central would truly benefit if you have anything.

I can send you the original 7X9 photo for your project but your email bounced back to me.
