U.S. Spanish American War Magic Lantern slide lecture series

Many moons ago I posted my Magic  Lantern slide sets on the Spanish American War on a now gone forum. To save space, I am only posting the Wayback Machine Archive links. I am not sure how many members are even slightly interested in the war or old vintage technology. These two sets are lecture teaching sets that were used in the 1920s class room.  It takes a while for the archive links to load. I show each slide individually.  Depending on the archive traffic/usage and how fast your computer is, it can take up to a minute to load a page.

A magic lantern


Below are excellent photos from a recent sale of a Magic Lantern Projector. All photos are from the auction.  Note this is a Military Cased set with an intact Edison light bulb.  This is way beyond my pocket book, but it is so rare and intact it sold ASAP.
