19¼ by 24 in. (48.9 by 61 cm.)

This ferrotyped print on Agfa paper is in generally excellent condition. As is typical of the ferrotyping process, pitting and an unevenness of the glossy surface are visible. There are scattered tiny deposits of original retouching visible under very close examination in raking light. 'BHB681' is annotated in pencil on the reverse.
