PIKE LANTERN SLIDES

In the 17th century, travelling story tellers used hand-painted glass slides to illustrate their tales,

projected by oil-fired "Magic Lanterns".


Printed and photographic slides for education and entertainment appeared in the mid 1800's.

Often monochrome photographic slides were later hand coloured.


We have inherited a large and eclectic collection of slides from the late 19th & early 20th century,

which we have digitised and printed.
