2: A hand tinted colour slide by E E Slater, it shows St Michael's Mount which lies 500 metres from Marazion on the Cornish coast, accessible by a causeway at low tide.
It is the sister island of Mont St Michel in Normandy, in the 1100s monks built a church and priory on the Mount which now lies within the castle.
It was the home of the St Aubin family from 1650 and is now administered by the National Trust.
E Slater must have been on this trip and took a series of images.
