People appearing in slides

EDWARD VII, King   (1841-1910) – slide [8]

FALLIÈRES, President Armand  (1841-1931) – slide [8]

GEORGE V, King   (1865-1936) – slide [8]

VICTORIA, Queen   (1819-1901) – slide [8]


This group of pose slides (slides intended to be projected onto the body of a live performer, with a space for her face to appear) vary greatly in style and may not all belong to the same set. Some appear to be entirely hand-painted, others are hand-painted onto a (presumably) photographic outline or a photographic background image.

Only the first five slides are identified as Radiguet & Massiot (Molteni) slides. The other slides of the set are similar but lack the manufacturer's label.

The tentative date for the set is based on slide [8], which shows King George V (acceded 1910) and the French president Armand Fallières (in office until 1913), but the other slides were not necessarily produced at the same time.
