Ladies and Gentlemen, Boys and Girls.
We are pleased to preview for you an image from the menagerie of her majesty, Queen Victoria. As you will see, we have one of the yeomen of the guard presenting one of her animals.
But what is this?
By the miracle of the magic lantern and the moving image the picture has changed! How is this accomplished? What strange magic is this? Well, you must wait and find out dear reader. For that is not the only miracle (or the only animals for that matter) that the magic lantern may produce!
