A lantern slide that would have been shown before a silent film in the late 10’s, early 20’s. Much like the ads (and triva bits) that appear before movies today, they were meant to keep the audience entertained before the show.
This particular one was shown in NYC theaters, which is ironic since our living spaces are significantly larger than theirs.
