Daguerreotype to Digital

A Brief History of the Photographic Process

Lantern Slides: the magic lantern
Period of Use: 1860s - 1930s

Produced to be viewed with a projector, lantern slides were both popular home entertainment and an accompaniment to speakers on the lecture circuit. They reached their popularity about 1900, but continued to be widely used until the 1930s when they were gradually replaced by the more convenient 35-mm slides.
