This image by William Weaver Baker is unusual as it shows another cameraman in action. The man in the photograph is Frederick Richard Rowley (1868-1939) who was curator of RAMM between 1902 and 1934. Weaver Baker generally took images of buildings and objects in Exeter, including those of museum artefacts, which perhaps is how he knew Rowley. Rowley was also one of two honorary secretaries of Exeter Pictorial Record Society, of which Weaver Baker may have been a member. The EPRS was established in 1911 to record the history of the city through photography.
