    • BIOGRAPHICAL SUMMARY: According to the Knowledge Network site "Foncie's Corner," he got his start as a Vancouver street photographer in 1934 when he began working for Joe Iaci of Kandid Kamera Snaps (842 Granville St.).

      After serving in World War Two, he and his fiancee Anne Carmela Paolello partnered in Metro Photos with E.M. Brant. Foncie later bought the studio at 550 Granville St.

      By 1950 he was operating at two locations and under two business names: Foncie's Fotos (550 Granville St.) and Movie Snaps (541 Granville St.).

      He retired in 1979 at age 65 and he and his wife moved to Kelowna until his death.
