As a crankie artist, I LOVE to read the old "how to" articles, written for children but applicable to the crankie artist today. Typical for this era, early
20th century, the articles are written for boys.
How to Make a Moving Panorama Show - 1910 from the Children's
A (Moving) Panorama - 1930, excerpt from The Boy Showman
Moving Picture Toy for Children from The Boy Mechanic
