This is a water-damaged panoramic silver gelatin developed-out paper (DOP) print.  Upon drying, the tissue paper used to wrap the print fused to the gelatin emulsion, obscuring the image.

Treatment included removing the fused tissue paper locally with poultices, removing a backing, washing the photograph to reduce discoloration, lining it with Japanese tissue and wheat starch paste, inserting toned paper inserts, and inpainting.  This photo is a good example of how disastrous items can be salvaged.
