Thomas Moran, Bravo, Sergeant Campbell! (London: J.W. Butcher, n.d.)


The Lizars catalogue lists an additional ten optional hymn slides spread throughout the set.

The Woods Lantern Slides catalogue gives the number of slides as 39, but this probably indicates an incomplete set.

The manufacturer is unknown, but taken to be based in Ireland because of the background detail (particularly brewery advertisements) in some of the slides – most likely one of the Dublin-based dealers in photographic and optical goods.
