The card has been laid down on another sheet of card. Several large creases to the upper left and lower right corners with minor associated losses have been restored. There are further smaller tears and creases to the top and bottom edges and centre of the left edge. Some of these have been retouched and this is visible to the naked eye. There is a small loss to the card in the centre of the upper edge and an indentation with associated minor paint losses just above the roofline of the building on the far left. There is a light layer of surface dirt. Inspection under UV light reveals retouching to all four corners, in places along the edges as well as to the creases in the upper left and lower right corners. Framed and glazed.
