Glass chromolitho slide. Colour. A hand-painted illustration slide, long form, on a piece of fragile, thin glass, of six African wild animals, would have been inserted into slots in a long wooden frame. Sequence of male and female figures on this slide include: wolf, monkey, lion, bear, camel and elephant. Also known as panoramic slides. The frame stays fixed in the lantern, and the glass is pushed through, stopping at each scene. Such panoramic slides were used to produce the effect of a journey moving across the various animals.
