  •  A local gent in my home town... (4+ / 0-)

    Had magic lanterns. He often went to the local schools and gave slide shows that showed local history and people, and would narrate them very effectively. He also made his own slides as well for his presentations, and we kids really liked them.

    He was a local citizen-historian too, and while he has passed on now, his memory lives on, and his collection of lanterns and slides were given to the local museum for their archives and use.

    Thanks, SF, I had not thought of Magic Lanterns in many a year.

    And yeah, I know tarantulas don't really act like that at all, so no snarking, this is the internet damnit!
