I think there just might be 1 or 2 shooters that did street before Vivian....

For someone whose website is dedicated to his street photography I'm a little surprised to see you write that. Off the top of my head:

Lisette Model
Berenice Abbott
Manuel Alvarez Bravo
Andre Kertesz
Henri Cartier Bresson
Paul Strand
Walker Evans
Ralph Steiner
George Grosz
Lee Friedlander
Harry Callahan
William Klein
Ray Metzger
Yasuhiro Ishimoto

That goes back as far as 1915 or so (Strand) up to Maier's first work in the 50s. (And there are many, many more street photographers working at that time and before, but this was just an immediate list that came to mind.)

You don't understand my PTSD sense of humor. That sir, was the reason for my response to that post. Thanks for your support on the issue.

ps.... don't forget George Krause.....
