This unsigned, original print was found in Imogen's files. Imogen made this print from one of the few glass negatives she brought with her when she moved from Seattle to San Francisco in 1917. Until she was awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship in 1970 to print her early work, the two heavy packages of glass plates were used as weights to flatten prints, their contents unknown to anyone but Imogen. Made on double weight paper with Imogen's printing notes and her Green Street studio stamp on the back. A letter of authenticity from Rondal Partridge, Imogen Cunningham's son, Trustee of the Imogen Cunningham Trust accompanies the print.
