Latest reports from Moscow on August 3 state that Russian sailors and marines of the Sea of Azov Fleet effected a landing on the coast west of Kushchevka, on the Caucasus railroad 50 miles south of Rostov.

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.
