Card Description:

This card is a companion card to photo catalog number 2019.036.005. This card is printed on a different card stock. The card stock here is pastel pink card stock on the back and off-white (pinkish cast) to the front. The other card is printed on vanilla on the front and off-white on the back with a natural finish to both. This card has some surface wear to the image as well as some foxing. There is a small stain on the back of the card, but it does not bleed through to the front. This card has some major discoloration to the image that appears to be contemporaneous and an issue with the printing process (see scans).

This card is of interest because the two different card stocks help with placing this image into a more concise date.
