The sheet is attached to the mount with two strips of adhesive tape to the upper edge. The drawing is on the reverse of a Langan's menu. The lower edge of the sheet is curling upwards, and there is some minor undulation in places. There are a few tiny nicks to the edges. There are creases to the upper right, lower right, and upper left corners, with associated rounding, with further creases to the sheet, largely at and towards the edges. The ink from the menu writing on the underside is visible in places. There are one or two very light smudges to the work. There is a small scratch in the upper left quadrant. There are some handling marks towards the edges, with two partial fingerprints in the lower right quadrant. There is dirt and surface matter to the work with a few spots of staining and flecks of foxing to the sheet. Subject to the above, the work appears to be in good condition.
The sheet is window mounted and unframed.
