Stains on sepia-toned prints

From: Robert Deane <deane>

I am seeking advice on possible causes of pink staining across the
image area of a sepia-toned image on fibre based paper. Our records
indicate that the image, one of two made contemporaneously of the
same image, was made on Ilford fibre-based paper in the early
1970's. Both images were sepia-toned, we believe using the standard
Kodak hypo alum toner T-1a. Both have been stored in the same
solander box under museum conditions since acquisition soon after

One of the images exhibits a distinct pink tone uniformly across the
whole of the image area.
