This beautifully contrasted silver print is in overall excellent condition. With rubbing to the left and top edges of the paper resulting in small areas of minor loss of paper. With tiny spots of retouching in the center right area. This print has been taped at various points along the reverse to the card mount, hence there is window area in the mount that clearly shows the signature and stamp.
