Slightly unsharp but a very rare shot. The negative is on very thick base film which infers it is aerial camera film. Therefore the unsharp image is due to the camera being fixed focus and the subject closer than the hyperfocal distance. This is the full extent of the negative area, probably due to the camera being ' aimed ' without benefit of a viewfinder. It is probably a test shot taken when an aerial camera was removed after use in another aircraft. Date a guess, photographer unknown.
