This photograph is in generally very good to excellent condition. Upon very close inspection, a few scuffs and thin scratches, some of which may break the emulsion, are visible mostly in the center of the print. When examined in raking light, the following are visible: occasional tiny impressions; and a few small raised areas, likely particles trapped between the print and the mount, primarily in the right portion of the image.
The edges are rubbed with occasional chips to the emulsion from contact with the frame.
