It traces the pre-history and history of cinema, from optical toys, magic lanterns and illusions up to today’s converging motion picture and digital technologies.|
|31||Online University of Photography ~ Photographic Collections||1880-onwards||Thanks to a student of Ms. Sarah Henson, history teacher and magic lantern enthusiast, for drawing this to our attention. This site is a wide ranging resource including numerous online galleries of early photography, film , stereoscopic views, magic lantern slides, and a good section on photographic technology. Some lovely Japanese slides appear in the collection. The material is mostly from the US and does not appear to contain any direct reference to Hepworth in it - unless you can tell us otherwise. However it does provide excellent insight into the state of the art.|
