This space may be used for Inland Correspondence.
D. Casinello, Photo, Seymour.
Dimensions (approximate): 135 mm. (width), 88 mm. (height).
The group of men are believed to be from Seymour (Victoria), as that location is noted as the place of publication on the postcard.
A search on the Trove website for a photographer or photographic business with the name of Casinello in Seymour gave no results. An article, from 1916, was found regarding the marriage of one George Cassinello, of Seymour (Victoria); however, whether George Cassinello was the photographer for this postcard is not known. Another article, from 1899, mentions a Mr Casinello, as a photographer, although that person lived in Newry (near Maffra, Victoria).

This postcard is Australian, as indicated by the picture of an Australian coat of arms on the reverse side; however, the phrase “This space may be used for Inland Correspondence” is the wording normally used on British postcards of the early 20th Century; it is possible that the publisher of the postcard copied the standard British postcard design.
