Description

"Scene from Baron Munchausen, c 1850. Magic lantern shows began towards the end of the 17th century but only became more popular in the 19th century with the improvements in lamp sources. The shows could range from simple didactic performances to sophisticated shows using double or triple lanterns to produce moving and dissolving images."
