Toronto. Items from the website Fans in a Flashbulb have appeared here before. The site is a blog and like our site, uses WordPress to format the site and add posts.
In the about menu item, the site defines itself as, “Fans in a Flashbulb presents selected works from collections of the International Center of Photography. The blog’s name is taken from the title of the Weegee photograph from around 1952 reproduced to the left. The entries are written by ICP’s curators, staff, interns, and students. Enjoy!”
The particular post shown here is a 1930s delivery truck. The print was added to Fans in December 4, 2009 – nearly a decade ago. The truck shows an innovative way to advertise. The giant folder camera touts a Zeiss Tessar lens.
Once again, I must give my friend George Dunbar a ‘tip of the hat’ for discovering this nifty photograph and its source site.
