Magic Lantern Slide: Bunyan alarmed for the salvation of his Soul (slide)


The Pilgrim’s Progress was written in 1678 and was very popular in Victorian England for its Christian message. The slides were shown while a narrator told the story, often using a printed script. This version comprises both hand-drawn images of scenes from the story, and hand-coloured photographs of costumed actors.
