Decalcomania. Ernst Plank (E.P.), Nuremberg, Germany. c. 1915. One strip of a set of twelve.

Many sets were launched in two or more variants. This had also to do with the sizes of the magic lantern slide; mostly the wider the slides, the more details.

Some of the figures portrayed above can be seen on another E.P. slide. It's remarkable that this time these persons are depicted less ugly than on the first slide. Did they complain?

This magic lantern slide was also released in a large number of different versions.
