Magic Lantern Slide: Golden Wedding Buffet 1947

This image by William Weaver Baker shows a buffet table, set out to celebrate his golden wedding anniversary in what is probably his front room. The related slide 313/1977/119 suggests dancing was to follow the buffet seen in this slide. The writing above the image states the date was 1947, with Baker having married his wife Lilly in 1897. Baker mainly produced slides of buildings and objects in Exeter, however these slides show a more personal focus.
