This early print is in overall excellent condition. When examined closely in raking light, the following are visible: deposits of original retouching, including a 4-1/4 inch linear deposit at the lower center; several linear impressions in the lower half of the image; and hairline scratches. The photograph is trimmed to the image and there is minor edge wear.
The edges of the mount appear to be inked. The collector's stamp on the reverse reads: 'Estate of Victoria Haas.'
