    The Old West: Group of Glass Slides. This lot has an assortment of glass slides. The best of the lot are three hand-colored glass slides housed in 7" x 4" wooden holders. These have paper label titles: Captain Jack's Cave, Modoc Stronghold and Bogus Charley's. Based on the clothing of the men in the pictures, it would seem the photographs were originally taken in the 1850's, although the slides seem to be of the 1865-1875 time frame. The other items include: three 3.25" circular magic lantern slides with colored scenes (literary figures, men in uniform) with cracks, three 4" x 3" movie preview slides circa 1940 (Hold 'Em Navy, She's No Lady, and Dangerous to Know), and four 4" x 1" magic lantern slides with juvenile subject matter (one incomplete).
