Cleveland Public Library Lantern Slide Collection








The Cleveland Public Library has an Internet exhibit called Coming Attractions: Cinema Teasers from the Silent Era. This collection was made available from W. Ward Marsh Archives.

With nearly 700 glass lantern slides from the silent film era, it covers films made between 1915-1928, including images of Edna Purviance, Charlie Chaplin and Eric Campbell in films like 'The Adventurer'. This collection is all on a database for easy searching or view the full collection with details on each slide. Cleveland Library had the collection since the 1970s, but now can have visitors enjoy it.
