Up at 6.30. Went to the town in the morning and ordered some things. Went for rations in the afternoon and nearly had an accident coming back. Went to lecture at night in St James’ church hall on the war and its origin and it was very interesting and illustrated by lantern slides1.
Lantern slides were used to project large format photographic transparencies or other images onto a large screen using a device traditionally known as a magic lantern, an early form of slide projector. They remained popular until as recently as the 1950s when they began to be replaced by the much smaller 35mm format. ↩
