This photograph is in overall excellent condition. It is gently rippled along the upper edge. In raking light, the following are visible: in the lower left quadrant, a 1-1/2-inch crescent-shaped crease that may break the emulsion, and a soft one-inch crease; and two very faint scratches near the left edge. There is very minor wear to the black negative edges and corners.
