Fighting in Italy: Photo from Signal Corps shows how door-to-door fighting took place in an unnamed town between German snipers and four U.S. infantrymen out on patrol. In this photo, the four men with rifles ready stalk down a seemingly-deserted, narrow thoroughfare. Death lies ahead of them and they are ready for it.

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.
