Vincenzo Bassano migrated to Canada in 1909 in search of work. His wife and children joined him later on. He is shown from mid-thigh up, seated with his hands placed on top of each other. He is wearing a newspaper boy cap, a suit with a white shirt and a striped tie. He looks off camera and his expression is emotionless.
