Vintage ferrotyped gelatin silver print on paper

Inside Hungary: The Hungary of yesterday remains a myth. If the name of Kossuth, her great fighter for freedom, is mentioned today, people only think of the Budapest Danube bridge, named after him. And the Danube is red again with the blood of political victims. From time immemorial, Hungarian oppressors sent them to their deaths in that river. The row of famous hotels along the Danube was burnt down during the siege of Budapest. The remains are now being torn down, and the hotels will be rebuilt. The job is being done chiefly by hand since the Hungarians lack machines, and also because they want to preserve the old bricks as much as possible for rebuilding, 1948.
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.
