Experimental lantern slide projection with Professor Nic Peterson, Martin Thomas, David and Judith McDougal, Jenny Gall and Diedre Feeney

A good couple of hours were spent at the ANU experimentally projecting magic lantern slides from the collections of Professor Nic Peterson, Martin Thomas and David and Judith McDougall, as well as my own, on my two vintage lanterns. Nic’s handcoloured mission slides from the 20s (I think that was the dates) were especially interesting, the handcolouring adding to their poignancy. Nic also had the back story on what was going on at the missions. I need to work on my skills as a lanternist, but we agreed we had discovered a lot here to develop further later in the year.
