Lanternists

Lindsay Lambert has presented magic lantern shows for many years now using an authentic magic lantern updated with a modern halogen bulb "since the railway frowns on passengers carrying tanks of dangerous gases on the train to generate the lime light illumination". Most of the slides used are original lantern slides including special animated slides, hand coloured slides and photographs.

With a background in theatre, "Professor" Lambert provides song and sound effects to accompany his show. His choice of slides gives the feel of the magic lantern shows of yesteryear while illustrating a history of the shows and their typical content and social messages all this with thumbnail histories of such diverse subjects as lighting, effect of bicycles and the auto on roads, rideau canal, and the train cars built to carry immigrants to the prairies
