Leaflet - Aldis Bros, Birmingham, circa 1915 Document Reg. No: SH 000902

Leaflet, for Aldis Bros. Birmingham, circa 1915, 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.
Cream A5 size leaflet, with blue printed text on one side only.
