Magic lanterns originally used hand-drawn slides, and demand grew when photographic images on glass became available. Prof. Tom Stevenson explains how the images were formed, and Winnie Stevenson shows the system in action, with classic photographs from Orkney Library Archive of the great St Magnus pageant of 1937 and many well-known Orcadians.
