In the early to mid eighties video rental stores began appearing decorated in movie posters, and cardboard cutouts of movie characters. VHS tapes, and games were stacked on the store walls. With recent streaming movie options, both large chain video rental stores and small mom and pop operations have vanished. Video Lease on east lake street is one of the last independent video rentals in the neighborhood. This photo shows Tony Reklis, the store owner since 2000.
