old raleigh tires

hi there, I found an old Raleigh single speed and I am fixing'er up and am trying to find a good place to source out new tires and tubes for it
The tire sizes are 28 x 1 1/2 and 28 x 1 3/4 my friend at the bike shop does not have any that he can source through his suppliers
Thx,
Pat
