PAST DELIGHTS FROM THE RAMM (EXETER) COLLECTION
OF LANTERN SLIDES

Dr Richard Crangle
Secretary and Treasurer, Magic Lantern Society
Hon. Associate Research Fellow, University of Exeter

Richard Crangle has been researching lantern slides for over 25 years, most recently as part of the British section of the 'Million Pictures' European project, based at Exeter University. In this talk he will show some of the weird and wonderful images held in the Royal Albert Memorial Museum, Exeter, and explain some aspects of their provenance and how they fit into a (more than) 350-year story of entertainment and instruction using the projected image. The talk will be illustrated with digital reproductions from the RAMM and original lantern slides from the speaker's own collection.
