Employs a lantern arranged in a prism, which throws upon a screen an image drawn on smoked glass. Portraits of some well known people as well as buildings such as the Flatiron building and the Statue of Liberty. Act is faked, two sheets of glass are used one painted over with lampblack to erase the perceeding picture, the picture slide is removed and a new subject substituted. The lampback is removed and the second slide shows through.
The effect would be better if it was handled with more care. It is a pleasant change from an older style of act.
