This gelatin silver print is in overall excellent condition. In raking light, deposits of original retouching are along the upper right edge of the image, as well as a 1/2 inch shallow scratch near the sitter's hair that does not break the emulsion. There is light wear to the edge of the top margin, as well as light creasing in the margins. On the reverse 'BVS 0144:4' is written in pencil in an unidentified hand.
