Homepage 'de Luikerwaal' War Scenes
depicted on magic lantern slides.
part 3a - Transvaal.
Transvaal in War.

It was York & Son, England, who made this beautiful set of slides, apart from the subject matter. The complete set consists of no less than 6 parts of 50 magic lantern slides each, making 300 slides in total. It is impossible to display all of these on this site; we only show almost all the slides from part 1 here.

The slides are square, 8.3 x 8.3 cm and are numbered 1-50.
The sizes of the images are very diverse as the images from magazines are used for this. Some have the portrait format, others the landscape format, and some are square. The images sometimes mention the source: 'From the "Graphic'' ' or 'Black & White'.
