Name of creator
Flora Thompson is a local Vancouver resident and amateur photographer.
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.
Immediate source of acquisition
Donated by Flora Thompson in 2012 and 2018.
