Celebrate Archives Month Philly at the Wagner Free Institute of Science as we showcase glass lantern slides from the special collections of the American Philosophical Society; Hagley Museum & Library; Mercer Museum Research Library; Special Collections Research Center, Temple University Libraries; and the Wagner Free Institute of Science.
The 2022 Philadelphia Lantern Slide Salon will showcase glass lantern slides from the special collections of several Philadelphia institutions projected from an historic lantern projector in the Wagner’s Victorian-era lecture hall. In the spirit of lantern exhibition culture, this salon will bring together unique and rarely-seen images presented in the context for which they were originally created.
