Eclipse Slide Carrier
. R.R. Beard, London. Lantern slide carrier for 3 ¼" x 3 ¼".

Beard was established in 1882 as a scientific instrument maker and later specialised in lantern equipment and lighting. The Eclipse allowed slides to be changed without blacking-out the screen. The inserted slide was pushed behind the current slide and sprung into place as the current slide was withdrawn. This was by pushing and pulling a wooden arm. The sides were inserted and removed on the same side of the lantern. The self-centring device allowed different sizes of slide to be used.
