Magic Lantern Slide: Daffodils (slide)


Alfred Rowden was a keen amateur photographer and natural historian in Exeter. He often gave talks at local field clubs, illustrated with magic lantern slides that he created or purchased from commercial manufacturers. Although most of his photographs are taken outdoors, some of them like this flower study were taken inside, and it is likely he had a dedicated area in his home for making and processing photographic images.
