A fifth figure, a girl wears a bonnet, a blue scarf and has her hands in her pockets. Magic Lanterns were projectors which made a small, handpainted image project on a large screen. Shows were held in theatres; children had toy magic lanterns as well. This slide shows children enjoying themselves and was surely meant for children's entertainment. This slide shows children in grown up dress and was surely meant to amuse children .
