THis is not to be critical, but to point out something that you might
have not noticed.

On my monitor, there is some distinct, what appears to be Newton Ring
color distortion in the sky of this scan.  It is quite noticeable in the
sky in the middle of the Eiffel tower and just above the right-hand
building closest to the tower.

Was a glass carrier used to scan this image?
