ferrotyped, the photographer's Magnum credit stamp and a 'No. 474' stamp, title in ink, and with annotations in pencil on the reverse, framed, an Edwynn Houk Gallery label on the reverse, circa 1957

Condition Report

This ferrotyped print, trimmed to the image, is in generally excellent condition. As is typical of the ferrotyping process, superficial scuffs, pitting, and a slight unevenness of the generally glossy surface are visible upon close inspection.


When examined in raking light, there is a fingerprint at the center left edge, and a very small, sharp handling crease is visible in the area of the man's arm that does not appear to break the emulsion. There is very minor edge wear and chipping.


The annotation on the reverse reads:


'Etats-Unis

Population

Aspects de la vie américaine'
