Eglinton Tournament Magic Lantern Slide


Not on view

This lantern slide is an interesting and previously unknown example of one of the many categories of ephemera that were created to capitalize upon the popularity of the Eglinton Tournament. Held in 1839, the tournament was a watershed event in the Gothic revival movement and inspired, among other things, fresh interest in collecting arms and armor.
