This silver print, which is taped along the top edge to the mount, is in overall good condition. With an area of indentation towards to centre of the image, most probably due to the restoration and retouching of a scratch. With light surface scratches and numerous handling marks throughout. With one small area of retouching in the centre of the image, only visible in raking light. With rubbed and creased corners and edges with small areas of minor loss of paper. With light undulation along the top edge. With some unknown light stains and light discoloration to the edges of the verso.
