Negative Vignette of two Edwardian women, one of a set belonging to Vincenzo Candela, an Italian migrant who came to Australia in 1920 with his wife Emanuela and son Angelo. Used in his photographic business in his hometown of Viggiano, Italy, where he specialised in portraiture, landscapes and village life. Vincenzo continued to use his photographic equipment in Australia, more as a hobby than a trade, taking photos of family members and friends in his home, with impromptu backdrops such as a rug or a sheet.
