Foncie's camera

Significance 

Vancouver’s best-known street photographer, Foncie Pulice, captured countless images of Vancouverites parading the downtown streets with this camera.
Foncie Pulice started work as an assistant to street photographer Joe Iaci in 1934. After serving in World War II, Pulice began working independently, using this camera made of war surplus materials. He snapped literally thousands of photographs during his career on Vancouver’s Hastings and Granville streets, which finally ended with Foncie’s retirement in 1979.
