Homepage 'de Luikerwaal' A rather extensive collection of
magic lantern slides.
Included are:
       
Just a lot of
movement slides.


A large collection of varied movement magic lantern slides. Slipper slides, rackwork and pulley slides, pivoted slides, single and double.... enjoy the amusing animations.
Just a lot of
funny stories told by magic lantern slides.


What is funny? What is humour? Did our ancestors have a very different sense of humour as we have nowadays?
 
       
Just a lot of
life-model slide sets.


Most stories told by these sets are not cheerful. Excessive drinking, unhappy love affairs, and the premature death of a beloved are regular occurring themes. But the end is nearly almost.... a Happy End.
Just a lot of

Sometimes the sets of magic lantern slides are very difficult to classify under a definite category. Yet we don't want to miss them for they are often very beautiful.

And the wonderful sets that deserved to get their own item at this side, like The Waterbabies, The Tiger and the Tub, The Bottle, Alice in Wonderland, Christie's Old Organ, Uncle Tom's Cabin, Jack and the Bean stick, Mr. ands Mrs. Brown and the Mouse, and..... well, you name it again.
