A set of 6 glass lantern slides in the 3.25 x 4.0 format. The original square 3.25" slides were produced by York & Sons, London in 1900. They were remounted in the early twentieth century by Pacific Stereopticon Co., Los Angeles to fit the American 3.25 x 4.0 slide holders.

The last picture is a bonus : a song title paper "In Our Home, Sweet Home" by John T. Kelly and produced by DeWitt Wheeler, which, although not part of this set , is enough interesting  to be shown here.
1. Mid Pleasures and Palaces
2. Home, Home Sweet Home 3. The Poor Sailor Boy 4. Home, Sweet Home
5. An Exile from Home 6. Home, Home Sweet Home The song
The lyrics of "Home, Sweet Home" are:
Mid pleasures and palaces though we may roam
Be it ever so humble, there's no place like home
A charm from the skies seems to hallow us there
Which seek thro' the world, is ne'er met elsewhere
Home! Home!
Sweet, sweet home!
There's no place like home
There's no place like home!
An exile from home splendor dazzles in vain
Oh give me my lowly thatched cottage again
The birds singing gaily that came at my call
And gave me the peace of mind dearer than all
Home! Home!
Sweet, sweet home!
There's no place like home
There's no place like home!
Dick Wilson's home

A set of 10 magic lantern slides made by York & Son England after the story 'Dick Wilson's home, and what changed it. ' (c. 1900)
    1. Don't Dick, don't!
2. 'Gentle Jesus, meek and mild' 3. Their hungry eyes looked wistfully at the herring 4. 'I didn't mean to interfere with you Dick'
5. The man had sat down to the table, sullen 6. She was down on her knees beside him 7. 'Children! are you asleep?'
8. Come along, children! we'll all have a feast 9. 'Well, do you like it?' 10. Happiness and prosperity
Every night when Dick Wilton comes home, he sends his children straight to bed. He often beats them and they often get no food, because most of the money is drowned in the pub. When he hears the youngest child praying, he repents and shares the herrings he wanted to keep for himself with his wife and children. From that day on, everything will be different....
