Japanese Lantern Slides

These amazing lantern slides come to us courtesy of E. Raymond Wilson who was awarded Japanese Brotherhood Scholarship for study and the building of friendships in 1926.  From 1926 to 1927 he toured Japan writing letters and taking these amazing images. 

Lantern slides are fascinating and inspiring. It makes me want to jump onto Photoshop and give it a try...the ultimate and original Hipstamatic Images!  You can earn more about the history of lantern slides here: http://memory.loc.gov/ammem/collections/landscape/lanternhistory.html
