Unfortunately we know very little from the maker of these beautiful magic lantern slides, Dewitt C. Wheeler. These slides are labelled “E.S. Borgelt, Sond Slide Rental Exchange, 1822 Lafayette Ave, Phone Kin, Genterl 9213-R, Granite Bldg., 4th and Market Sts. Room 208", obviously the name and address of the rental service.

Style and subjects hardly differ from the slides made by Scott & Van Atena. Here too Love plays the leading part.

This wonderful slide made by De Witt C. Wheeler shows the trademark and the address of the maker.

Sizes: 3.25"x 4" (c. 8 x 10 cm).

Sweet Rosie May. Set of eight slides on a popular song from the Schiller Music Pub Co. New York City depicting a visit to Coney Island. A trolley out front of the Mardi Gras Hotel, a trolley with a 'D'Lancy St. NY' placard, three slides near the seashore, Rosie May on a coin-op scale outside of Pike's Peak, and the outside of a souvenir shop which is loaded with the then newly popular teddy bears. The last slide has the chorus for the sheet music song. Slides measure 3.25"x 4" (8 x 10 cm).

Also the large European manufacturers of Live Model Slides, like Bamforth & Co. and York & Son produced a lot of Sing-along slides, however not by a long chalk as much as their American colleagues.
