CA PHOTO bat-817 George H.W. Bush Politics U.S. Presidents
Approximate Size: 7.6" x 8.7"

Photo ID: BAT-817-CA
This WIREPHOTO is straight from The Commercial Appeal'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.

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.
