The reluctant donkey.
This slide differs from the usual single slipping slides that use black painted dots which alternately mask off one and then another part of the subject.

Two glasses are mounted in a wood frame. The one that is a fixture is painted black with a rectangular blank space, thus forming a kind of frame around the picture. The other glass is free to move in a lateral direction. This slipping glass contains the two phases from the story as one continuing picture.
By moving this glass, alternately one half of the picture is visible through the blank window of the fixed glass while the other half is hidden behind the black paint.

And again another mechanical slide using a very special mechanism sold by EDWARD BRYAN OPTICIAN MANCHESTER. A man (Martin?) exchanges head with donkey.

Single slipping slide showing sleeping man frightened by bird.

Excuse me ladies. A special mechanical magic lantern slide that is viewed as being highly hostile towards women. Man gives a smacking to his wife using a shoe. This is a kind of level slide that is controlled by a piece of metal wire.

The frame is made of two wooden parts that are glued together. The cover sheet of this mechanical slide of the same kind is removed to show the metal wire and how it is fixed.
Another six mechanical magic lantern slides that are controlled by means of a metal thread. Above: skeleton appears, head of man pops up, and the tongue moves.
