Notes on this view:

This is an example of a warm platinum print, ca. 1900. The platinum print process was commonly used for expensive portraiture at the time, being considered more "artistic" and "refined" than the silver processes.This print is mounted in a folder, a presentation method used by portrait studios beginning in the late 1800s. The positive transfer image seen on the left was likely created by catalytic paper degradation.
