    are there any BeachScopes or Telescope picture guys?

    I know there was a story about the Telescope pictures place getting raided. But is the Beach Scope place still in business? Did they combine a few years ago?

    My daughters were looking through the old scopes this weekend. The past couple of years I can't remember why we didn't have the "Scopes" guy do it, I think they had been in the ocean and had their hair wet from the ocean already. We had some scopes made from the "old time pictures" place they came out on the beach, but all the way down to the ocean, and it was nice to have the pre-printed "Ocean City" and the year...I'm hoping there is some business running around the beach this summer

    The place I'm thinking about was arounf 14th street by Laytons

    OK. Not meaning to sound out of touch, but what are the Beachscopes or Telescope Picture Guys. Are these those little keychain things you get with a photograph inside?

    I love those little scopes. I have them from when I was a few years old all the way through school, my senior week in OC & as an adult. Great memories are captured in those little things

    yes there are... the scope guys have red swiming trunks and has the word scopes on there buts...I had tracked one down last year.... and they have more than just scopes now you can have them put on a cd to put on a computer and a regular photo on a key chain with the year and where they were taken instead of having to look inside of a scope...you could also have mini keychains as well and have pictures in various sizes...

    I asked that question of a photography studio near my home about 15 years ago, and they said they would charge me about $25...
