This print, on double-weight, semi-glossy paper, is in generally excellent condition. When examined under raking light, a few creases that do not appear to break the emulsion are visible in the lower portion of the image. The margin edges are slightly rippled and this occasionally extends into the image.
On the reverse, there are three hinge remnants at the upper edge. 'Print Made in the Time Life Photo Lab, 1994'; '(c) Time Warner Inc. All Rights Reserved'; and 'RMG 30949' are written in an unidentified hand in pencil.
