This gelatin silver print, likely ferrotyped, is in generally very good condition. In raking light, several handling creases are visible throughout, notably several sharp creases that appear to break the emulsion adjacent to the right and left edges. There is a linear crease in the right portion of the image, running from the top edge to the lower edge. There is moderate soiling on the reverse. There is a one-inch repaired tear extending from the left edge. The following is annotated by the photographer in pencil: 'photo et tirage réalisées par moi-même avant 1959.'
