New! Moving Pictures, Optical Entertainment and the Advent of Cinema
The fourth section of Victorian Popular Culture explores the pivotal era in entertainment history when previously static images came to life and moved for the first time. Through a wealth of printed and visual material as well as artefacts in this resource, we are able to imagine the wide-eyed wonder of those early audiences, experiencing the magic of Victorian inventions and optical entertainments.
