The photo and mat show toning, and the photo has masking tape, tape stains, and paper lifts in the corners. There is a piece of paper tape on the verso attaching to photo to the mat, and the photo has a printed photographer's credit stamp for Hartsook. The mat has been signed, "Aug. 1924" and "To Richard J. Moore, With Love - Vivian Duncan, Li'il Eva (What?)."
