The photograph is mounted to a paper support. All edges of the photograph are visible, and this was not examined out of the frame. With a 1 inch crescent shaped line of rubbing or soft abrasion in the sky to the right of the upper deck of the ship at right. With a few very small areas of lighter white dots in the sky at right, possibly inherent to the printing method. Otherwise apparently in very good condition.
