Another "thank you" goes out to Ron Easterday, the President of the Magic Lantern Society of the US and Canada. He helped me find this "child-sized" magic lantern. Magic lanterns helped usher
in the demise of moving panoramas in the 2nd half of the 19th century (magic lanterns were much more portable and the magic lantern slides were easier to produce).
Magic lanterns and moving panoramas
were sometimes used together by projecting images onto the moving panorama scroll. I was able to demonstrate that with the small magic lantern. This combination is something I want to pursue this year.
