VICTORIAN GLASS SLIDE , 1801

This glass slide is hand painted, as were all the earlier Victorian ones. In later photography, images were recorded onto glass slides and would be shown as black and white, not coloured like this one.
This slide would have been shown by using the Victorian Magic Lantern.

The Magic Lantern shown in the photograph (included in the loan box) has an electric lamp mounted inside that looks original, although it is possible it may have been converted by a professional from an earlier oil lamp. The Magic Lantern or Lanterna Magica was the ancestor of the modern slide projector.
