Slide set: Marvels of modern photography (lecture: Newton & Co., 72-81 slides, 1913-1937)

Known references to this set
Catalogue of lantern slides: part II (London: Newton & Co., 1913), 398

“This is an entirely new Series, carrying the Science of Photography right up to date, but it is arranged, and the lecture has been written, to suit a popular audience.

A glance at the list of subjects will show the comprehensive nature of this set, and while it is purposely kept on such a plane as to interest and amuse an ordinary audience, it may safely be concluded that there will not be one man present to whom some point of other will not be new.

Note. --  Those who find this lecture takes well with an audience may like to try the next of the 'Marvel' Series which is now being published and of which details will be found on page 656.”
