Magic Lantern Slide: After tea at Myrtleberry

Description
This image by William Weaver Baker shows a group of people sat at a table with a tea pot. It is likely the man at the back of the group may be Weaver Baker himself and the woman sitting to his left is probably his wife Lilly Burgess Baker. Weaver Baker generally took photographs of objects and buildings in Exeter, but this image is one of a few showing a more personal focus. The hand written label states the location is Myrtleberry, probably referring to a location in Lynmouth.
