Abstract

Photographs of Italians in Wales in the interwar period quite often feature either family members posing behind the counter and outside cafés, or family and social groupings. The recurrence of these themes suggests that these were not simply snapshots of a new life to be sent to family relations and friends in Italy, but historical records of people, places and events. A photo-textual analysis of these photographs can reveal that they conveyed a specific image and message to the contemporary viewer.
