Commentary
German Trenches Captured by British: These trenches were once the unhappy home of German troops. British shells kept the Germans in terrible suspense. With remarkable aim, British gunners would pick them off a number at a time. Then came the great drive --- the British troops won and are seen occupying these trenches. British official photo.

Marks
Credited in plate with typeset credit and title on label affixed to verso.

Technique
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.

Materials
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.
