The garden hose
The classic garden hose joke.
Four long magic lantern slides, size 22 x 7 cm, probably from a French manufacturer. The last slide is signed, but unfortunately illegible.
 
The Rope Trick



This series, consisting of 9 slides, was made by York & Son, London, but the slides bear labels from the manufacturer W.C. Hughes from London.

They are made after a poem by F. Grove Palmer, 'The rope trick'. A poor bum seeks a way to earn a living and shelter. He lets himself be tied up with a rope by a sailor and is thus taken away by a police officer who takes him to the place where he will find food and lodging.
