Item No: ADT-436-BS
Scan Size: 8.3" x 10.2"
This WIREPHOTO is straight from The Baltimore Sun's historical photo archive. Wirephotos are different than traditional photographic prints! This print is the result of what used to be breakthrough technology (now completely obsolete) that allowed a photographic image to be scanned, transmitted over "the wire" (telegraph, phone, satellite networks) and then printed at the receiving location. They are often on thinner, slick paper (very similar to old thermal roll fax paper) and often fade or become sepia toned quicker than traditional silver halide prints. Long removed from commercial use, these artifacts represent an important era in the history of news media. Click here to read our guide on Wire Photos.

Photos may contain written comments, attached paper clippings, crop marks, tonal enhancements, masking or other alterations that were necessary for publishing so please review scans carefully before purchasing.

Now, for the first time in Tribune history, you have the opportunity to own one of these historic certified archive photographs.Is this photo an Original?
Most collectors do not view wire photos as originals since they were not printed from a negative (click here to learn more about Wire Photos). Unfortunately, the definition of an "original photo" varies greatly from person to person (click here to read our guide on this topic). Every photo we sell is a Certified Archive Photograph, which means it is the actual photograph that has been stored in the archive from which it came. It is NOT being printed on demand - once this item is purchased, it is gone from our inventory. Please review the scans carefully as this is the best representation of the actual condition and appearance of the photo.Shipping Information
