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.
23 page catalogue. Contains information about various Thorton-Pickard products. Extensive printed text in black. Vincenzo Candela's logo for his photographic business has been stamped on the front in purple ink (FOTOGRAFO/VINCENZO CANDELA/VIGGIANO).
