Lantern slide made of glass

Museum number 1972-351-41

This lantern slide shows Captain William Adams inside the crow's nest on the SS Maud 1889. Only his head and shoulders are visible above the barrel. He is bearded and wearing a cap, and there is a telescope fixed to a rail in front of him. The crow's nest is still on the deck of the ship, prior to it being hoisted to the main mast.
