Condition Report

Laid to backing board. Image with overall silvering and yellowing to highlights due to inherent vice. Light scratches to image surface throughout. Loss to the substrate directly below the subject’s eye. Measures ½” x ½” when viewed from verso and from recto, has resulted in a minute crack to the emulsion. There is also a secondary loss to the substrate directly to the right of the other when viewed from the verso, but this has not affected the emulsion.
