Unknown glass slides
|Description||Three sealed microscope slides of an unidentified vegetable.The contents of this slide are difficult to determine; suggestions have included emulsion experiments and unidentified vegetable matter. These glass slides come from a 14-drawer cabinet found in the Herschel family home in the 1950s. The contents of this and a similar cabinet seem to suggest that they were used by successive generations of the family to store specimens, material and apparatus for carrying out experiments.|
