Magic Lantern Slide: Whippet (Peterborough)

This slide by William Weaver Baker shows a side profile of a whippet standing on the ground. The dog is likely to have been white with a brown patch on its head, shoulder and above its tail. This slide is part of a set of dog photographs, but it is unusual as Weaver Baker recorded where it was taken.
