Look at the Clock

A set of 9 magic lantern slides made by York & Son, England, after Look at the Clock: A Welsh Rhapsody for Chorus, Soli (Tenor and Contralto) and Orchestra by Thomas Ingoldsby.

Thomas Ingoldsby was the pen-name of the Rev. Richard Harris Barham, an English cleric of the Church of England, novelist, and humorous poet. His best-known poem is "The Jackdaw of Rheims", about a jackdaw who steals a cardinal's ring, and is made a saint.
The slides are square and measure 8.2 x 8.2 cm.

4. The whole day, discussing the case and gin toddy 5. So he stopp'd, and look'd down on the valley below 6. 'Twas Grandmother's Clock, David makes for a run

Free Trade and Tariff Reform
This special set of magic lantern slides can be viewed as a contemporary broadcast of a news program on television, complete with subtitles and background images. The table includes John Bull, a national personification of the United Kingdom, Lloyd George, Prime Minister of the United Kingdom from 1916 to 1922, a labourer and his wife. They are having a lively discussion about the Free Trade and Tariff Reform.
The complete set consists of at least 45 slides and possibly many more. It would go too far to print it in its entirety below because apart from the texts there is little variation in the images.


Jacky Marlingspike
A set of 12 magic lantern slides made by Theobald & Co., England.
"How Jacky Marlinspike returned Home in time for Christmas Pudding" was originally published as an illustration for The Graphic's Christmas Number edition in 1890. It serves as a reminder of the sacrifices made by those who serve at sea and highlights the importance of family and tradition during festive seasons.
A marlinspike is a tool used in marine ropework. Shaped in the form of a narrow metal cone tapered to a rounded or flattened point, it is used in such tasks as unlaying rope for splicing, untying knots, drawing tight using a marlinspike hitch, and as a toggle joining ropes under tension in a belaying pin splice.
