magic lantern slide – dogsled and snake charmer


snake charmer magic lantern slide

a few years ago I bought a set of glass magic lantern slides from an antique store….most are in a heavy glass strip with lead edges, four images to a strip. I believe these would have been entertainment in a wealthier home in the Victorian period…think early travel illustrations for home entertainment
