This print is in very good to excellent condition. A beautiful example of the British photographer's work, with strong tones and contrasts. Upper right card corner a little bumped. A couple of foxing marks on card and brown tape residues along left edge of card, away from image. A couple of very faint indentation marks, retouching and pressure points, as well as a fine outline mark where the window mount has been resting, all of which hardly noticeable and only in raking light.
