This large 11x 9″ photo is in my personal collection and I consider it one of my most prized possessions! This is an original press photo from 1928 and as you can see there has been permanent “markup” done on the surface of this photo to show the editors how and where to crop for publication. As much as I would love to see that “frame” go away…it is actually part of the charm of this image and a little window into what pre-photoshop days must have been like. It looks to me like a metal file folder frame was laid on top with some whiteout added at the top to make it more artsy.
This is most likely what it would have looked like in print ….with text added around it of course
