JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The folks at the Whiteway Deli in Riverside don't just have your sandwich in mind when they tell you "say cheese."
The owner, Sam Salem, has been taking customer photos with an old Canon behind the front counter for decades.
"I started, then I got the camera as a gift in 1972, I just wanted to practice on customers, and then it just blew up," he said.
He still fills it with film, takes the exposed roll for processing, and at the end of each week, posts new customer photos on the walls.
In all, Sam estimates he's taken more than 70,000 customer photos. Of course, he can't fit all of those on the walls.
So, he's got shoe boxes, photo albums and a warehouse in the back full of photos. He refuses to throw any away.
"You know them, you know their family, you see their kids growing up," he said.
