Condition Report

This large impressive photograph, on double-weight textured paper, is in generally very good condition. Upon close examination, there are scattered small deposits (likely retouching). In raking light, a faint patina of silvering is visible primarily along the left edge of the print. The photograph is mounted to tan paper and mounted again to a slightly larger sheet of brown paper. The paper mount it rubbed and there are a few small tears, not impacting the photograph.
