Signed, location (Paris) noted and dated on the verso. Passes black light test (unusual for later Kertesz prints) with just a bit of oxidation on the edges of the print. This is probably no later than early 1960s. I originally thought it was late 1940s, early 1950s. An earlier than normal print (most come from the late 1970s or 1980s) with nice presence.
