This slide is part of a set showing different types of fungus and is labelled as ‘The blusher,edible’. The slides were bought by the Royal Albert Memorial College in 1933 to use as a teaching aid in classes for local men and women. Each image is a photographic print which has been hand-coloured. They were made and sold by CT Green who was a medical practitioner and amateur botanist in Cheshire.
