Please note the colors and shades in the online catalogue illustration may vary depending on screen settings. This warm-toned photograph is in generally very good condition. At the edges are a few small parallel linear cracks which appear to break the emulsion, particularly near the upper edge. There are some tiny losses to the inked border and minor edge and corner wear. The reverse is lightly soiled. The following are written in pencil in an unidentified hand: '#96 [circled]'; '[?]0250'; and 'top'. It is stamped 'A Margaret Bourke-White Photograph' and 'Archivally Reprocessed 19[75 in pencil].' When examined under ultraviolet light, this print does not appear to fluoresce.
