Soldiers waving their discharge papers at the Indiantown Gap, Pennsylvania military post. The post operated as a separation center after serving as a training camp for many famous outfits, including Pennsylvania’s own 28th Division, Ohio’s 37th “Buck-eye” Division, the famous “Fighting First” division, the Third Armored and the 77th "Statue of Liberty” Division. The Gap’s folding up now, May 1946.

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.
