This photo was taken in Salva Crusca's family backyard in Coburg, 24 October 1963. This was the first house the Crusca family ever owned in Australia. Tommaso Crusca, Salva's father, made the swing set. Tommaso was standing behind so that Salva's baby brother Francesco didn't fall off the swing and probably set the camera so the photo could include him.
