The slides are listed in the Church Army 1913 catalogue in approximately chronological (or at least Biblical) order of the events they show in Christ's life. The numbering of the slides in the catalogue is therefore apparently random, but seems to suggest that there was an original set of around 500 slides, to which new subjects were added in batches over a period of years.
