5 mismatched slides in this box collection. Three hand-tinted slides for the Poly Lantern Society featuring theatre curtains (separated from its glass backing plate, with emulsion side exposed and vulnerable to scratching), and a slide of a hand written poem; one hand-tinted slide of a circular floral reef surrounding the word 'Welcome'. Perhaps an opening, first slide for a lantern show to welcome the audience. One black and white photographic slide of British soldiers from the Boer War marching down a street from Marble Arch, caption reads: 'the home flag'. One black and white photographic slide of a family of travellers, with tent and horse-drawn home, caption reads: 'The Gypsies Home'. One black and white photographic slide of a harbour scene, with small settlement at the water's edge.
