This photograph, on double-weight paper, is in generally excellent condition. When examined closely in raking light, the following are visible: a tiny deposit of retouching with an attendant impression over a flaw in the negative in the area of the boy's hat; a small crescent-shaped handling crease in the left portion; and a faint crescent-shaped impression in the lower right quadrant, neither of which appears to break the emulsion.
There are a few minor creases in the margins and at the margin corners.
There are some very minor adhesive remnants on the reverse.
