Lantern slide of Cherry Blossoms along the Tidal Basin in Washington D.C. c. 1920.
Lantern slides are sort of an old school Instagram— photographs were developed on small glass plates and hand painted in color. The slides were then projected onto a larger surface for viewing by an audience. This slide is from Smithsonian Gardens’ Archive of American Gardens.
