“The pantomine of the Slippery Slipper that wouldn't go on, and the two Wicked Sisters, the Pretty Prince, and the Fairy Godmother. The first slide shows the Elgin Glass Mine, and the manufacture of the slippers. Thence to No. 16 the old tale proceeds, and at No. 17 we have a grand transformation scene, 'Flora's Palace of Golden Palms,' the remaining four slides being devoted to Mr. Joey Clown and his operations.”
