Questo documento presenta stampe fotografiche ***alla gelatina a sviluppo virate al platino***.

Description of objects in photo archives on display at a show.
Hoping someone with a background in this area can unravel the phrase.
My halting attempt: This document includes photographic prints using gelatin coated paper developed and platinum-toned. I'm not certain the gelatin is on the paper, nor does the word order make sense. Any help would be greatly appreciated. The era is 1930s to 40s.
