As a crankie artist, I LOVE to read the old "how to" articles, usually written for children but very applicable to the crankie artist today. Typical for this
time, the information is aimed for boys, glad we are evolving.
How to Make a Moving Panorama Show - 1910 from
the Children's Encyclopedia
A (Moving) Panorama - 1930, excerpt from The Boy Showman
Moving Picture Toy for Children from The Boy Mechanic
