Magic Lantern Slide: Flower Studies - Snowdrops and Fern

This photographic slide by William Weaver Baker includes cut snowdrops stems and ferns in a glass vase. Weaver Baker was a keen amateur photographer and produced sets of slides on different themes, this slide being part of a set of 52 flower images. This image is unusual as it combines two different species, perhaps intending to provide a more natural composition.
