State Ed. Dept. glass slides

Play around with the glass slides, the projectors. Learn more about them and how they were used. Here's a state archives page with some basic history. Could be material for blog postings, displays, do a little slideshow for the staff sometime...

Think about whether need to keep all the slides. The ones of artworks seem iffy - but many of the others are unique, in that they depict places and people long gone. Don't be too quick though - we might be able to sell the slides, and I see projectors on ebay for anywhere from $200 - 400.

Here are some sites with more info on these "magic lanterns."
