Feb 20th Martin Berry “Lantern Slide Collection 2”

Warrington Photographic Society has maintained a historical unique collection of lantern slides, or sometimes referred to as  ‘magic lantern’ slides, from past members of the club. The slides date back to the early days of the club in the 1890s up to the 1960s when production of glass slides ceased as more modern 35mm slide material became available. The collection is a fascinating journey through history and includes a variety of subject not just in the North West areas but throughout the United Kingdom as well as European destinations.
