This photograph, trimmed to the image and on double-weight paper with a smooth, semi-glossy surface, is in generally very good condition. Faint age-appropriate silvering is visible in raking light in the darkest areas of the image. Also visible upon very close examination in raking light are the following: tiny, faint matte deposits (possibly foxing) in the upper portion of the image; and an isolated area of small surface scratches that do not appear to break the emulsion in the upper left quadrant.
On the reverse of the photograph, there are tiny, faint rust-colored deposits (likely foxing).
When examined under ultraviolet light, this print does not appear to fluoresce.
