German Peace Delegates In Session! The German peace delegates are in session in the Trianon Palace at Versailles. They are listening to a speech by one of their members regarding objectionable conditions in the treaty. Rumor has it that the treaty will never be signed by present German authorities, Versailles, France.
Credited in plate with typeset credit and title on label affixed to verso.
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.
