New Version of the Cork Leg.
Een nieuwe versie van de houten poot.
A set of 12 square magic lantern slides made by E.G. Wood, London. At the bottom left of each slide is a small triangular label reading  "E.G.Wood, 1 & 2 Queen St, Cheapside, London". The twelve slides tell the story of a man who had a new cork leg after his old artificial limb broke. It is clear that he needs some time to accustom himself to the new leg.

Adventures of Ally Sloper in a snowball.
Probably made by Bamforth & Co.
One slide from this comic series of magic lantern slides is missing. It is also not clear what the order of the first three slides is.
1. The philosopher abroad. 2. He stops to meditate. 3. Amid the snow he stops.
4. Children find a snow pillar. 5. And try to roll it on. 6. When lo ! a hat appears.
7. An umbrella project. 8. With which they poke and push. 9. Another shove, and lo! some shoes.
10. Which eagerly they seize. 11. And dance a jig in. 12. A general break down.
This story is also released as a series of magic lantern slides with the accompanying texts printed on the plates.
