Photograph of Visocchi family, Montreal, QC, ca. 1945 - solo in inglese

Black and white photograph of Visocchi family, Montreal, QC, ca. 1945. Given the backdrop and setting, the photograph was taken professionally in a studio.

Giuseppe Visocchi was one of the Italian Canadian men interned in June 1940. He was an Italian veteran from World War I, and the president of the Caserta Club. As the only breadwinner for his large family, Giuseppe Visocchi's internment of about two years was devastating to his wife and seven children -- all dependents at the time.
