Darkroom Work

The print looks highly dodged to equalize widely different light levels, which leaves me wondering about the "negative" in the caption, since it would still require all that printing work.

The high grain level suggests they were pushing the film too.

[There is no print. The Library of Congress file is a raw scan of the original 2-1/4 square camera negative, which looks like this. Dave adjusts the raw scans in Photoshop for publishing on Shorpy. -tterrace]
