Magic lantern show

Victorian illustration to download showing a picture of a magic lantern show at a children’s party. The room has been darkened, and on the wall a sheet has been hung to act as a screen. The audience of children and adults watch in excitement; one little girl stands on her chair. On the screen the magic lantern operator has projected a comic slide of a sailor catching a Chinaman by his pigtail. In the foreground is a table with party food on it – cake, fruit and decanters.
