This photograph is in generally very good condition. When examined in raking light, the following are visible: silvering in the darkest areas, mostly at the edges; some tiny matte spots mostly confined to the upper left quadrant, likely foxing; and some tiny fibrous adhesions.
On the mount, a thin excess of dry-mounting tissue is visible along the upper edge of the print. There is a stray graphite deposit in the upper portion of the mount. There are scattered rust-colored deposits as well as minor soiling on the front and reverse. There are several tape remnants along the edges on the reverse of the mount.
