September 10, 2018 – Victorian Magic Lantern Show and Blacksmith Demo
The Victorian Magic Lantern Show was a precursor to the modern day movies. Hand painted slides are projected, and even appear to be animated. Beth and Mark Ayers will present their show set to Henry Wadsworth Longfellow’s poem, “The Village Blacksmith.” We will also have a blacksmith doing a demonstration in our blacksmith shop.
