Fred Taylor Egg Collection

A collection of birds eggs collected by Fred Taylor of Oldham.

They are housed in a beautifully made wooden cabinet that was created by Fred and his son. The cabinet has 34 drawers containing 1026 British birds eggs.

Fred Taylor (1871 – 1949) was a founding member of Oldham Microscopical and Natural History Society.

They were sold to Oldham Museum in 1931 and purchased using the Yates Bequest.
