This ferrotyped print, on Agfa paper, trimmed to the image, is slightly creamy in tone and in overall excellent condition. As is typical of the ferrotyping process, a slight unevenness of the generally glossy surface and minor pitting are visible in raking light. Pitting is slightly more noticeable around the power lines. Upon close examination, a few extremely faint linear impressions and handling creases are also visible. There is a small spot at the lower left corner that appears somewhat smoky and the corner is bumped. There are a few tiny areas along the extreme lower left edge where there are some old adhesive remnants on the print.
The reverse is faintly soiled. In response to your inquiry, we are pleased to provide you with a general report of the condition of the property described above.
