Magic Lantern Slide: Man working on seat outside building

Description
This slide by Alfred Oliver Rowden shows a local man at work, outside a building. The man appears to be working on pottery vessels, but unfortunately Rowden did not label the image with a title or location. The photograph was taken by Rowden in Mesopotamia, where he served during the First World War until he was sent home in 1919 or 1920. He photographed daily scenes like this to record his experiences.
