Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

Here is an enlargemnet of the smaller set. I wish I could find one at a decent price. Click on this an it gets bigger so you can see titles. It seems a lot of these sets used the same drawings.

I have not seen the set. It belongs to a lecture series, but apparently the slides were 8 1/2 inches long by 2 3/4 inches high with 4 circular pictures on each slide. Not the standard size. This original information sheet does not have the makers name on it. So there must be another set out there. It sounds like it has some interesting views in this Spanish American war set of Magic Latern slides. The "Great illustrated Lecture Series, Our heroes Return"
