Condition Report

This photograph, on stiff double-weight paper with a semi-glossy surface, is in generally excellent condition. There are very thin margins along the upper and right edges. Upon examination in raking light, the following are visible: tiny deposits of original retouching; a pin-point-sized impression that does not appear to break the emulsion in the center of the image; and faint silvering along the lower edge.


On the reverse, 'N1939 - P1939' is written in pencil.
