Magic Lantern Slide: Lycaste skinneri

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. The hand-written title on the slide binding shows it belonged to Ralph Morgan, another keen Exeter naturalist, and that it was used in a lecture about Kew Garden flowers.
