'AIR SHOW IN COLO. SPRINGS, COLO.'


platinum print, signed twice, titled, and annotated in pencil on the reverse, framed, a Ginny Williams Collection label on the reverse, 1930

13⅛ by 10⅛ in. (33.3 by 25.7 cm.)

This platinum print, with a pleasing, slightly warm tonality, is in overall excellent condition. The following are visible in raking light: a tiny fox mark in the center right and a linear scuff in the lower center. The edges of the image are very subtly yellowed. There are clip marks in the margins with associated tiny emulsion losses. The emulsion along the margin edges are occasionally chipped. The lower left margin corner is soiled.


'16 x 20-spot' and an illegible numerical inscription are written in pencil in an unidentified hand on the reverse. The reverse is faintly soiled.


When examined under ultraviolet light, this print does not appear to fluoresce.
