A NOTE ABOUT THE SLIDES: These are the original hand drawn pictures that have been around for years. They have been converted to PowerPoint slides from the old 33mm slides. It is rumored that they are copies from the old glass slides and may date to the mid 1800s. Ask some of your older members if they remember the “Magic Lantern” and glass slides. Because of the size of the files, they can not be emailed. However, once downloaded, all three will fit on a CD.
