A gelatin silver print photograph entitled ‘Contents of an Ostrich’s Stomach’, taken by Frederick William Bond, c. 1930. 
Bond was Assistant Treasurer and photographer at the Zoological Society of London. Amongst more conventional photographs of the inhabitants of London Zoo, he also photographed objects retrieved from an ostrich’s stomach after its death. Details of what it swallowed are written on the back of the print, these included a lace handkerchief, a buttoned glove, a length of rope, a plain handkerchief, assorted copper coins, metal tacks, staples and hooks, and a four-inch nail.
