As much a photograph of an early woman ballplayer as it is an instructional piece in late Nineteenth Century matting techniques, a young lady in sliding pads is being subsumed by the frame and matte used here.  The photo itself has some good contrast, with just a bit of fade along the bottom.  The reverse is a marvel of engineering ingenuity, with glued canvas tape securing things.
