VERY SPECIAL--Lot of 20 World's Columbian Glass Lantern Slides

$115.00

We can't show 20 photographs here but we can guarantee that all of the slides will be a terrific cross-section of the World's Columbian Expo. It is difficult to photograph the slides so while some images may look doubled or out of focus rest assured it is not the sllides themselves. The Kennel collection included a box of several dozen slides. We've sold some smaller groups of 5 along with individuals already. We have assembled this 20-slide group and as you can see (hopefully) and have 2 groups available. These are really very nice slides and should bring $20± each in today's market. I recall only a few years ago when lantern slides brought $50 (!) each on ebay. Some years ago I sold a group of about 25 slides to a local photography collector for about $20 each. These two lots of 20 are $115 or less than $6 per slide. It's a rare opportunity. If I were on the other side of this auction, at this price I would grab both lots with no hesitation. We've included five here for your review (all we can show per listing on this software) but they are indicative of the content and condition--except for the possible doubling/fuzziness trying to focus on the glass. Many but not all slides have a photographer/studio name and hand-written caption. Some of the images not shown here include Administration Bldg, McMonnies Fountain, Florida Bldg, Furniture exhibit, Electrical Bldg, Agricultural Bldg, Equimaux Village, Bird's Eye View rendering, Peristyle, Algerian Theater, People in rolling chairs, people in front of Admin Bldg, "Japanese Ladies on the Midway", Manufactures & Liberal Arts Bldg, Machinery Hall and many, many more. These images are not in just one lot but partially in each lot.
