This hand-tinted view is by an unknown photographer. The slide is from the American Museum of Natural History in New York City, also the home of the Willamette Meteorite. Glass slides, or "magic lantern slides", were the first form of projected images, pre-dating the invention of photography. Related more closely to negatives than to prints, they are known for their high level of detail. Originally used for entertainment, glass slides in the early 1900s were used more and more as an aid to education, and museums and universities developed extensive collections. -- This photo is restored and printed by Old Oregon.
