One child from a large family with a homemade doll. Camp for displaced persons from the Sudetenland in an old, half-destroyed arsenal that was given to the displaced persons. They live here to work in Austrian farms and factories. The places where the people work have given them some materials to rebuild part of the arsenal. The nursery is run by the displaced persons themselves. 400,000 children in Austria--all children under 6 years old--get UNICEF food, Vienna, 1948.

Illustrated: Magnum image reference PAR114509.

Ferrotyped prints are processed in such a way that they are shiny. The print has a sensitive surface, usually thinner, because it was put through a press while still wet.

Ferrotyped prints have a sensitive surface, usually shiny and thinner, because they are put through a press while still wet. Ferrotyping makes the surface of the photograph smoother. Light does not scatter as much on a smoother surface, so this increases contrast. That makes ferrotyped images better for press photography.
