Custodial history

Scope and content

Fonds consists of photographs primarily showing the decorative wrought iron hand rails at the entrances of houses in the Marpole neighbourhood. Taken at different periods from 1995-2003, Thompson took these photographs specifically to document the wrought iron detailing and many of these buildings have now been demolished. Other photographs included in this fonds show houses on Beach Avenue downtown boarded up for demolition, Kitsilano Showboat performances, and scenes at Vanier Park in winter.
