Wirephoto from the Historic Archives of
Mark Spitz Swimming
Item No: AAT-758-BS
Scan Size: 8" x 10"
straight from The Baltimore Sun's historical photo archive. Wirephotos
are different than traditional photographic prints!
print is the result of what used to be breakthrough technology (now
completely obsolete) that allowed a photographic image to be scanned,
transmitted over "the wire" (telegraph, phone, satellite networks)
and then printed at the receiving location. They are often
on thinner, slick paper (very similar to old thermal roll fax paper)
and often fade or become sepia toned quicker than traditional silver
halide prints. Long removed from commercial use, these artifacts
represent an important era in the history of news media. Click here to read
our eBay guide on Wire Photos.
The Baltimore Sun watermark is displayed to deter image theft and will NOT
show on the actual photograph. Handwritten names on the back of the photographs
are for identification purposes only - they are NOT autographs.This listing is
for a single archive photograph to be purchased as a collector’s item. No rights
for reproduction or commercial use in any form whatsoever are given or implied.
Every photograph is sold as is, and bidding on or buying
this item constitutes acceptance of all policies, terms and conditions as stated
in this listing.

Is this photo an Original?
Most collectors do not view wire photos as originals since
they were not printed from a negative (click
here to learn more about Wire Photos). Unfortunately, the definition
of an "original photo" varies
greatly from person to person (click
here to read our eBay guide on Original Photos).
Every photo we sell is a Certified Archive Photograph, which means it is
the actual photograph that has been stored in the archive from which it came.
It is NOT being printed on demand - once this item is purchased, it is gone
from our inventory. Please review the scans carefully
as this is the best representation of the actual condition and appearance
of the photo.
