Christie's old Organ.
(Christoffels oude orgel)
Een aantal sets lantaarnplaten naar het boek van Mrs O.F. Walton.
Christie's Old Organ, or Home, Sweet Home.
Service of song (zangdienst): fabrikant waarschijnlijk Bamforth & Co.
Deze set is uitgegeven in verscheidene uitvoeringen, met gekleurde illustraties met levende modellen, met dezelfde afbeeldingen, maar dan in zwart/wit, en tenslotte nog met nogal zwak getekende afbeeldingen. De complete set omvat ongeveer 47 lantaarnplaten.
Twaalf lantaarnplaten van de eerstgenoemde uitvoering staan hieronder.
