Condition Report

This photograph is in generally good to very good condition. In the upper left quadrant, along the edge are the following: a 4-inch crease that does not appear to break the emulsion; and adhesive and paper remnants. When examined in raking light, the following are visible: a few soft and sharp handling creases; a 2-3/4-inch scratch at the center left; a small crescent-shaped impression and a small matte deposit, possibly retouching, both in the upper left quadrant. Near the edges there is a very faint line of graphite, likely transference from a mat.


The left margin edge is gently rippled, and there is minor wear to the margin edges and corners.


There is a small rust-colored stain on the reverse.

When examined under ultraviolet light, this photograph appears to fluoresce.
