*ABOUT MAGIC LANTERN SLIDES*:
Lantern slides are positive images on glass that were intended to be projected for viewing. These slides came into wide use in the United States after the 1860’s. During the 1890’s, magic lanterns were in high fashion as an extension of photography. Lantern slide shows, or the magic lantern, became popular home entertainment and served as an accompaniment to speakers on the lecture circuit, as a teaching aide in classrooms, and in movie theaters for advertising and coming attractions.
