Magic Lantern Slide: Topsham Academy Medal

This photographic image by William Weaver Baker records one side of a silver medal awarded by Topsham Academy to Henry Lambert in 1827 for his writing skills. The reverse of the medal is shown in another of Baker’s magic lantern slides (313/1977/640). The medal is in the museum’s collection (see 40/1921) and is evidence of the close working relationship Baker had with the museum and its collections.
