Kertész authority Robert Gurbo believes that this print was made between 1946 and 1952.
This ferrotyped print, on double-weight paper, and with a 1/8-inch margin, is in generally excellent condition. The following typical characteristics of a ferrotyped print are present and are visible only in raking light: uneven, or thinning of the ferrotyping at the periphery, minor surface pitting, and extremely faint vertical marks on the surface as a result of the print having been placed on a drum for drying during processing. In addition, several small deposits of original retouching are also visible, only in raking light.
When examined with a black light, this print does not appear to fluoresce.
