Envelope, for Premiata Fabbrica, circa 1910, used by Vincenzo Candela in his photographic business in Viggiano, Italy. He specialised in portraiture, landscape and village life, and had a well established client base. After his migration to Australia in 1920 Vincenzo continued to use his photographic equipment, 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.

Physical Description

Surrounding the woman's legs and spreading across the envelop are various depictions of Italian states and towns, including Parigi, Rome, Firenze, Bologna.
