Magic Lantern Slide: Church Army Hut, weekdays, Makina, Basrah
This photograph by Alfred Rowden shows the church inside the military compound at Basra, Iraq. The photo was probably intended to be seen alongside slide 45/1960/95/1135. Rowden was in Mesopotamia during the First World War and was not sent home until 1919 or 1920. He photographed scenes like this to record his experiences.
