How it works


Two photographic prints from Italy in the 1885:

  • F Gioli - "Boreoiole di S Rassore". Women carrying heavy firewood loads on their heads. 140 x 245 mm. Signed and dated
  • Luigi Gioli - "Barocci pisani". A grey dray horse pulling a very heavily loaded cart. 175 x 225 mm. Signed and dated

The photographers' subjects are very unusual - rural scenes with, especially in the case of the women, what appear to be exceptionally heavy loads (except that, differently from their African counterparts, they each have the assistance of a large vertical branch to which some of the smaller branches are attached)
