Magic Lantern Slide: Swallow's Nest and Eggs, Hoopern Farm (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. He was especially interested in birds, and the location of this farm on the outskirts of Exeter was near his favourite study area of Stoke Woods.
