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.
Photo size, paper envelope that opens out, so there is a place for holding photos on each inside flap. the envelope is yellow and black, with text in yellow, red and black. On the front in the centre is a folding camera. Half of the front is yellow, and the other is black. The back has extensive text on a background of red, yellow and black.
