Magic Lantern Slide: John Bright's House

Description
This slide is part of a set recording historic buildings in north west England, made by John Crabtree who lived in Lancashire. This slide is titled ‘John Bright’s House’, which probably refers to the liberal politician and promoter of free trade who was born in Rochdale. Census records give Crabtree’s job title as ‘HM Inspector of Factories’ but he was also a keen amateur photographer. The slides were donated to the museum by his relative who lived in Exeter.
