Gelatin silver print mounted to board, image/sheet size 7 3/8 x 9 1/4 in. (18.7 x 23.5 cm), framed.

Several faint fox marks on the back of the mount and in the u.l. corner of the mount recto. The mount has a slightly textured surface, and there appears to be a very faint overall mottling that may be attributable to the acidic mount. The print does not appear to be affected.
