This photograph is in generally excellent condition. There is a 3-1/2-inch thin, linear glossy area in the lower portion of the image. When examined in high raking light, scattered matte deposits, possibly original retouching, are visible. The faintest silvering is visible in raking light at the extreme edges of the print.
The photograph is on a thin buff-colored mount. The mount (and by extension the photograph) is gently rippled overall. There are a few tiny rust-colored deposits on the mount. There is minor brown soiling on the reverse of the mount. In response to your inquiry, we are pleased to provide you with a general report of the condition of the property described above.
