This photograph is in generally excellent condition. When examined in raking light, the following are visible: deposits of original retouching; the faintest silvering in some of the dark areas; some tiny linear impressions and creases that do not appear to break the emulsion; and several fingerprints. The edges of the print are slightly worn with occasional tiny losses of emulsion. The upper and lower left corners are creased.
The reverse of the mount is unevenly yellowed with minor soiling and some creases. There are 4 tape remnants. 'Side of N. Y.' is written in an unidentified hand in pencil on the reverse.
