THE WCPHA is a non-profit British Columbia society established in 1974. The association is a small informal group and welcomes anyone interested in photographic history or collecting cameras to our monthly meetings—held 7.15 pm, the first Wednesday of each month at the Alpen Club, (Winestube on top floor) 4875 Victoria Drive, Vancouver. Some members meet for dinner before each meeting at 6 pm. All meetings start with a buy and sell session followed by a presentation or show and tell of member’s latest finds. We organise a Christmas dinner and a vintage camera outing and competition each year.
