This early, warm-toned print, on semi-glossy double-weight paper, is in generally excellent condition. As is sometimes seen in prints made from 35mm negatives, the film edge, with the negative's sprocket holes, is visible along the lower edge of the print. In the upper margins are the white outlines of push-pins. In raking light, the following are visible: age-appropriate silvering in the dark areas; scattered handling creases; and a few tiny impressions, none of which appears to break the emulsion. There are a few pin-holes in the margins, and the margin edges and corners are bumped and worn, with some attendant chipping. There is a loss of emulsion in the upper right margin, which extends into the image very slightly.
The reverse of the print is lightly soiled, particularly at the edges. The number '95/35' is in an unidentified hand in pencil.
When examined under ultraviolet light, this print appears to fluoresce slightly.
