Slide Projector

Slide Projector

The slide projector and slides go all the way back to 1849.  The original slides were glass, and quite fragile.  They were also much larger than the 35mm film slides shown here.  These became popular in the 1950s, when people could use them to entertain friends and family with slide shows.  Today digital images have replaced slides, although replacement parts for projectors are still available.
