Description:Lantern slide showing an Egyptian Potter selling his ware on the banks of the Nile. This is one of the few coloured slides in the collection.

This lantern slide appears to be one of a group used for a presentation or slide show by Blake entitled “Staffordshire Pottery.”

A small folder containing approximately sixty reader cards was found in the same box as the slides. The cards contain information about the images. The card that appears to correspond to this slide reads;

"Egyptian Warehouse. How the native made pottery is sold today on the banks of the Nile. Note the shopman "washing his hands with invisible soap" in the approved London and provincial style. Also note the nets used for packing."

This is one of the few colour tinted images in the collection.
