I remember seeing Alphonso (Foncie) Pulice once in the early 1970s on Granville street in downtown Vancouver. He would take snaps of people as they passed by and hand you a card where you could pick up the snap the next day (for a fee).

Pulice started as a street photographer’s assistant in 1934 and retired the day he turned 65 in 1979. What I love about street photography is that this is fashion in reality – no red carpets:
