Bill, you're correct - although it was Karl Struss who coated and printed on both sides of the paper. The image on the back side of the paper was reversed. He repeated this up to 12 or 13 times to get a good black. Stieglitz was impressed enough to choose 6 prints for Camera Work and Struss was invited to become a member of the Photo-Secession.
